Those documents may include:

  • Proof of address
  • A copy of your original 1040 tax form
  • Copies of your driver's license and/or your Social Security card if we don't already have them on file

If RushCard does need additional documentation, we will contact you by email or phone. Make sure your email address and mobile number are up to date in your online account. You can also sign up for text3 alerts to receive notification on any pending loans.
