What’s a Prepaid  card, you ask?


How It Works

Prepaid cards are not credit cards – they are  cards that you load funds onto, from a payroll direct deposit, government benefit payment (such as Social Security, SSI, or SSDI), Western Union Money Transfer®, or even tax refund.

In addition to direct deposits, the Western Union NetSpend prepaid card allows you to transfer money online from a bank account right onto your prepaid card, or reload it in person at any one of 130,000 reload locations across the U.S. in the NetSpend Reload Network.


Why It Works

The Western Union® NetSpend®  prepaid card is  fantastic for people on the move… There is no minimum balance required, and there are or interest payments because it’s not a credit card.

Also, if you use direct deposit for your paychecks, you can have access to those funds , allowing you even more freedom!
