    Direct Deposit and prepaid cards...

    Advertisements
    Hubby and I have not had a checking account for about 2 years now. They get us in triubloe and it's just easier NOT to even have one. We used a prepaid credit/debit card for all of our bills, etc. But we are wondering if this will work with Army pay? The card comes with routing and account numbers for direct deposit, we dont do that now causae his current company doesnt do direct deposit (which I HATE).

    Does anybody know if you can use this type of card for army pay? TIA

    You can call DFAS @ 1-888-332-7411

    But no you can't have it go to a prepaid card. You have to have all deposits go to a checking or a savings bank then you can transfer to the prepaid card if you wish.

    I would suggest going to a financial counselor on post, too to help you learn how to budget with a checking account because having one can become necessary. The accounts don't get you in trouble, not paying attention to them is what gets you in trouble.

    I'm fairly sure that if you do not have a checking account, he'll be required to set one up in boot camp. Don't quote me on tat though...lol!
