Your RushCard must be successfully activated between 11/20/20 and 4/30/21. Your federal or state tax refund and two payroll or government benefits direct deposits, each in the amount of $500 or more, must post to your account by 6/30/21 to qualify for the credit. A one-time $15 credit will be applied to your RushCard account by the 10th business day of the month following your second qualifying deposit. One $15 credit per customer. Excludes cards acquired through a Tax Preparer’s office.

*A tax refund may only be direct deposited into an account that is in your name. This means that if you file a joint return, the name of the primary filer must match the name on the account. If a tax refund is directed to an account that is not in your name it may be rejected and returned to the IRS. No more than three electronic refunds can be deposited into a single financial account or prepaid card. If you exceed this limit you will receive notice from the IRS and a paper check refund.

How to set up Direct Deposit on your RushCard

Your Direct Deposit is loaded when your employer or benefits provider gives us early notice you have money coming. Not every employer or benefits provider gives us early notice every payday, but many do. Faster access to funds is based on comparison of a paper check versus electronic Direct Deposit.
