Prepaid & Gift Cards

Prepaid, gift, payroll and government benefit cards are convenient and popular financial tools that can extend the reach and benefits of banking services to those without traditional bank accounts.

Related Topics

ABA generally believes that a prepaid card should be treated the same as cash unless the prepaid card mimics a traditional deposit account. Inappropriate regulation of prepaid cards can raise costs, limit flexibility, inhibit innovation or otherwise reduce their value to customers.
