Financially empowered citizens are the key to the nation’s economic health. Many state and local governments are rightfully concerned about and working toward helping the “unbanked” and “under-banked” build the personal and financial resources they need to achieve self-sufficiency.
Issuing benefits through prepaid cards helps achieve self-sufficiency for these citizens, freeing them from high cost, alterative financial institutions such as check cashing stores, payday lenders and title lenders. Governments benefit from decreased postage and check printing/reprinting costs.
Join GOVERNING magazine for this webinar to explore how issuing benefits with prepaid cards helps governments:
Enable the “unbanked” to achieve self-sufficiency
Give citizens greater security and convenience
Decrease postage and check printing/reprinting costs
Increase efficiency and save time
