All state employees now have the opportunity to deposit all or a portion of their pay directly to an electronic payment card: The U.S. Bank AccelaPay® Visa® Card. You do not need a bank account to have your pay deposited to a card. It’s not a credit card, so no credit check or approval is necessary!
Each pay period, the payroll application (OSPA) initiates an electronic funds transfer to deposit your pay to your card. No more waiting in line to get your check cashed or paying expensive check-cashing fees. Over a million businesses worldwide accept the AccelaPay Visa cards.
Need cash? You’ll receive unlimited free cash withdrawals at U.S. Bank ATM's, plus two free non-U.S. Bank ATM withdrawals per month at any VISA/PLUS ATM in the United States. You will also receive unlimited cash withdrawals from a teller at any financial institution that accepts Visa. You can also receive cash back with your purchase from many merchants, like supermarkets, without a fee.
Already have direct deposit to a bank account? No problem. You can still choose to load a portion of your pay to an AccelaPay Visa. It’s a great way to keep cash for holidays, vacations, birthdays, and day-to-day expenses separate from the rest of your money.
Start enjoying electronic payments today! Fill out and print the Pay Card Authorization form
(pdf). Turn it in to your agency’s main Payroll Office. Once your card arrives in the mail, simply call the number on the back of your card to activate it. The next payday after you receive your card, you’ll have immediate access to your funds on payday.
