Alterna is commited to financial inclusion and to the belief that everyone deserves dignity in their financial lives. We are meeting this commitment by providing an industry-leading prepaid reloadable Mastercard program, with specific and powerful features designed to serve the immigrant and unbanked communities. The Alterna Prepaid Mastercard is available to U.S. citizens and also to U.S. residents who do not have a SSN but do have an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN).
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A CARD ACCOUNT: To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires that we obtain, verify and record information about each person who opens an account with us. What this means for you: when you open an Account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, social security number or individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN) and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
