What this means for you: When you open a Card account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents. In accordance with Federal regulations, until it is activated and registered, a prepaid debit card is subject to initial load limitations, may not be used for ATM cash access, international transactions, money transfers, or be reloaded. Residents of the State of Vermont are ineligible to open a Card Account.
