  • 1.  Green Dot Paycard Prepaid for payroll

    Posted 05-03-2021 01:33 PM
    We are exploring the prepaid card option for payroll. We think it would be useful for the student employees. We just began using Paylocity and they partner with Rapid for the pay card. For those of you who use the prepaid card option, what do you like and don't like? Does anyone use rapid!? Rapid is a Green Dot company. Any insight or information would be very appreciated.

    Thank you

    Diane,

     

    Sinclair has partnered with our bank PNC for our paycard needs. We started this in Fall of 2020, and use it for any employees who do not wish to get direct deposit. It's worked out great. We can issue a paycard in an hour if needed, and PNC handles any issues employees may have with the card, just as if they had their bankcards. We haven't printed a paper check in months.

    We are in the process of implementing the Wisely pay card through ADP.  We recently migrated from a legacy HCM/Payroll/Finance platform to Workday and ADP was added as the support outsource for the payroll payments.

    I used to work for a company that used paycards for non-DD employees.  Getting a paycard issued in an hour would have been amazing!  Our paycard company took a week to issue.

    We can get it issued, but PNC distributes them. So, we could get an account setup, the employee still would need the card sent by the bank. Our PNC rep says there's an emergency feature where they could pick up their card, but we haven't needed to do that.

     

    Most of our employees that have paycards, didn't believe we would set them up with a paycard and when we do, they turn in DD paperwork immediately after.
