ISSUE DATE: 12/2016

RCA benefits are issued via check for the PPP administered RCA program. The Issuance Operation Center (IOC) mails the check to the local resettlement agency for over-the-counter pickup.

After the participant has been on RCA for 2 months his and/or her RCA benefits may be issued via Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) if they meet the following conditions:

The RCA participant is exempt from employment services because he/she is:


Employed at least 30 hours per week.


Age 60 or over.




Caring for a disabled spouse.


The RCA participant is employed less than 30 hours per week, but his or her work schedule makes it difficult for him or her to pick up the check at the voluntary agency.
