The payments from your previous job will stop automatically. To re-start direct deposit with your new employer, fill out another direct deposit form, sign it and hand it to your new employer.

How much money can I add to my prepaid account at one time?

There is no minimum on the amount you can add to your account; however, there is a daily maximum you can add to your account. The maximum daily limit is $10,000 for Direct Deposit and $1,500 for cash loads, although certain third party money transfer services may have their own daily limits. For cash loads there is also a monthly limit of $9,500.

Cash loads are limited to 5 per day and 30 per month (past 30 days). Third party money transfer services used to load funds to your Card Account, may have their own daily, weekly, or monthly limits.

If you want to add cash at a store, most stores charge a fee of $3.95 to $5.95. Adding your paycheck automatically is fast, free and easy with Direct Deposit. We offer special promotions from time to time to credit the store fee.

How do I know if my money was added to my prepaid account?

When adding cash, the store should provide you with a receipt number or reference number for each transaction. Please save this transaction number. You can also get your balance information using our SMS Text Alert service. Carrier message and data rates apply.

When will the money be available?

Your money will normally be available on your payday if you are using Direct Deposit. If you are loading cash, your money will generally be available within 30 minutes.

How It Works
Many employers and benefits providers notify the bank of direct deposits before your official payday. If we receive sufficient early notice, we will deposit your payroll or benefits into your account early. Ask your employer or benefit provider when they submit their direct deposit information to the bank. Your employer or benefit provider may not submit early every pay period. Early deposit for benefits will post after your first benefits direct deposit.
