Successful identity verification required to reload.
1. GET PAID UP TO 2 DAYS EARLIER WITH FREE DIRECT DEPOSIT
Subject to your payment provider’s process and timing.
Setting up direct deposit is easy to do and can get you paid up to 2 days early (depending on when we get instructions from your payment provider).
What is direct deposit? It’s a free feature that lets your employer or benefits provider electronically transfer payments directly from their account to yours.
How does early direct deposit work? Many times, your payment provider will notify our bank of your incoming deposit in advance of your actual payday. If they do, we’ll credit your pay or benefits to your card balance when they give us that advance notice (instead of waiting for payday). This way, you can have access to your money sooner!
