Make Life Easier and Save Money with Direct Deposit into Your Alterna® Prepaid Mastercard® Account!
You will receive a direct deposit form with your card in the mail or you can download it by logging into MYACCOUNT or find the form in your AlternaCard App. The routing number and your account number are printed on the form. Once you filled out the form, give the form to your employer and begin receiving direct deposit into your Alterna Card account after 1-2 pay periods.
Alterna gives you access to your money as soon as the funds are electronically deposited into your card account. Your employer will make those funds available on the day you would have received your paycheck, and it may arrive up to two days earlier.4
In order to receive direct deposit to your card account, your card account must be active and in good standing. Also the name associated with the direct deposit must be the same as the name associated with the card account
