People getting unemployment checks in Michigan will get a break on ATM fees next year.

Michigan issues unemployment checks on debit cards.

The old cards were issued by Chase Bank. Many people complained about unfairly high fees for using the cards at ATM machines.

For example, people had to pay a dollar to check their account balances.

Kurt Weiss is a spokesman for the Department of Technology, Management and Budget.

He says people will see that fee and many others go away after Bank of America takes over.
