The Alterna Card is a cross border prepaid debit card program, that provides cardholders with financial inclusion through our industry-leading features designed for U.S. immigrants, unbanked consumers and anyone looking for a better way to manage their money.
Social Security Number is required for US citizens. Non US citizens can enroll with Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN).
The Alterna card allows cardholders to transfer money card-to-card in real time to family and friends in Mexico2 who have a Referral Card (LEARN MORE COMING SOON). Cardholders can also share money in minutes with other Alterna cardholders in the U.S. — Share up to $500 per transaction with other Alterna cardholders for $0.50. To transfer or share money, login to MYACCOUNT on this site or in the AlternaCard App and go to “MOVE MONEY”. You can then select either “TRANSFER” or “SHARE”. See your Cardholder Agreement for details.
