Payroll cards allow you to receive your wages, salary and any other payments you may receive from your employer (“wages”) automatically, loaded onto your Card for each pay period.

Once your wages are loaded onto your Card, you can use the Card at any merchants that accept Mastercard to make purchases or you can obtain cash from your Card at an ATM or bank teller.

For all deposits, your ability to withdraw funds may be delayed in cases of error transmissions or transfer irregularity. If this occurs, funds will be available within (5) Business Days after the transfer.
10. Your Responsibility for Card Transactions. You are responsible for all transactions initiated by use of your Card. If you give someone your Card, Card number or PIN, you are permitting that person to use your Card and you are responsible for all of their transactions even if you did not expect or specifically approve the transaction, except as your liability is limited by the “Electronic Fund Transfer Disclosure and Terms” included below (Section 31) or as otherwise limited by this Agreement. If you want to revoke the authority of someone to use your Card, Card number or PIN, you must notify us by calling us at 1-877-323-9363 or writing to Cardholder Services, PO Box 1109, Sikeston, MO 63801, and you must give us a reasonable amount of time to act on your request. We will make commercially reasonable efforts to comply with your instructions to revoke that authority, which might include replacing your Card or changing your Card Account number.
Split Transactions. If you do not have enough value loaded on your Card you can instruct the merchant to charge a part of the purchase to the Card and pay the remaining amount with cash or another card. These are called “split transactions.” Some merchants do not allow cardholders to do split transactions. Some merchants will only allow you to do a split transaction if you pay the remaining amount in cash.
Your Obligation for Negative Balances. You must keep enough money on your Card to pay for each transaction and all other fees that we may charge under this Agreement. You should keep track of the amount of value loaded on Cards issued to you. You may view the amount of value remaining on your Card by logging into your Card account at www.readyfunds.net by calling the Customer Service number shown on your Card and listed below at any time to obtain the current value associated with Card. Call toll-free 1-877-323-9363, 24 hours/7 days a week for the balance or if you have questions on Card usage.
Each time you use your Card, you authorize us to reduce the value available on your Card by the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees. You are not allowed to exceed the available amount on your Card through an individual transaction or a series of transactions. Nevertheless, if a transaction exceeds the balance of the funds available on your Card (creating a “shortage”) you shall remain fully liable to us for the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees or charges. You agree to pay us promptly for the shortage and any applicable shortage fees. We also reserve the right to cancel this Card should you create a shortage with your Card.
Your Tax Reporting Obligations. You are responsible for reporting to all applicable government tax authorities, all earnings received and loaded on to your Card or Card account and the payment of any applicable local, state, province, and/or federal, domestic or international taxes that apply to such earning.
11. Authorization Holds. When you use your Card for a transaction, a “hold” will be placed on your available Card funds in the amount of the authorized transaction until it is posted to your Card, (normally within 7 calendar days) at which time the funds will be debited from your Card. Transactions at certain merchants that pre-authorize high dollar amounts, especially rental car companies and hotels, may cause a “hold” on your available balance for usually no more than 30 days but in some instances could be as long as 90 days depending on the merchant and other factors that are uncontrollable. Reasonable steps are taken to minimize delays when possible. You will not be able to use the money on your Card that is “on hold.” Typically, transactions made with your Card using a PIN will be posted to your account on the same date the transaction occurs. Some signature-based transactions made with your Card can take additional business days to post. In some cases, the amount of the pending transaction may not match the actual amount of the final transaction. For example, transactions with some merchants (including gas stations and restaurants) may involve an initial hold for a dollar amount that could be greater than the final debit. In addition, some transactions with some merchants (such as hotels and car rental companies) may be preauthorized in the purchase amount plus an estimated amount to cover tips or incidental expenses. We will have no liability to you in the event we decline any Card transaction because such an authorization hold is in place. We will have no liability in the event any merchant delays or fails to complete the final processing of any Card transaction.
12. Account Adjustments. We may make adjustments to your Card Account from time to time to reflect corrections or changes to your balance. Adjustments might occur, for example, if deposits are posted for the wrong amount, or to the wrong account, or if items are returned unpaid. In the event of an error that has caused an overstated balance, you agree to reimburse the overstated amount.
13. Limitations on Transactions and Card Use.
Limits on Frequency and Dollar Amount of Transactions. For security reasons, there are limits on the number of withdrawals, payments and other transfers you can make using your Card each day:
There also are limits on the total dollar amount of withdrawals, payments and other transfers that you can make each day:
We may in our sole discretion further limit your use of your Card and, in addition to our limits, ATM owners and merchants might also impose their own dollar limits on your transactions.
You May Not Schedule Repeat, Automatic Payments. You may not use your Card or Card Account to schedule repeat, automatic payments to third parties. These are sometimes called “pre-authorized electronic fund transfers.” If you want to use your Card or Card Account to make payments to third parties, you must schedule and authorize each payment separately.
Prohibited Transactions. You agree that you will not use the Card in connection with any Internet or on-line gambling transaction, even if gambling is legal in the jurisdiction where the activity took place. You also agree not to use the Card at unlawful domestic or international gambling web sites, or at payment processors supporting unlawful gambling web sites, or to purchase illegal goods or services. We are not responsible for your losses from gambling or illegal activity. It is your responsibility to determine if your usage is legal. The display of the Mastercard logo or any other logo by any person accepting the Card does not indicate that a transaction is legal. We may refuse to process any transaction that we believe might violate the law or the terms of this Agreement.
14. Card Expiration. Your Card will expire and no longer be valid for use as of the last day of the month of the “good thru” date that is stated on your Card. Upon Card expiration a replacement Card will be issued to you. Upon Card cancellation, any remaining Card balance will be returned to you.] If you have any questions regarding any remaining Card balance as of the expiration of the Card, call customer service at 1-877-323- 9363, visit www.readyfunds.net or write to us at Cardholder Services, PO Box 1109, Sikeston, MO 63801.
15. Returns and Refunds. If you are entitled to a refund for any reason for goods or services obtained with your Card, you agree to accept credits to your Card for such refunds. The amounts credited to your Card for refunds may not be available for up to five (5) Business Days from the date the refund transaction occurs. No cash refunds will be made by us to you on Card purchases.
16. Disputes with Merchants. We are not responsible for the delivery, quality, safety, legality or any other aspect of goods and services that you purchase from others with a Card. Any claims concerning goods, property, or services purchased with the Card must be resolved by you directly with the merchant or seller, and any claim or defense that you assert against such merchant or seller will not relieve you of your responsibility to us for the total amount of the Card transaction.
17. International Transactions. If you initiate a transaction in a currency other than US Dollars or in a country other than the United States including online merchants, this will be considered an international transaction. Transactions in a currency other than US Dollars are converted to US Dollars using the currency conversion rate used by Mastercard, which is either a wholesale market rate or the government-mandated rate in effect one day prior to the processing date for the transaction. The current conversion rate used by Mastercard on the processing date may differ from the rate in effect on the transaction date or on the date that the transaction posts to your Card Account. The combined processing fees for foreign transaction and for transactions made outside the US including Mastercard and other bank charges, can be up to 5%.
18. Additional Card Details and Restrictions. The Card is a prepaid card that has been provided to you by your employer pursuant to a payroll card program. The Card is for personal use only. The Card does not constitute a checking, savings or other bank account and is not connected in any way to any other account you may have. The Card is not a credit card.

19. Customer Identification.

What this means for you: When you open your Card account, we may ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license, government-issued photo ID or other identifying documents on a going forward basis in connection with your Card.

23. Our Right of Setoff. We have a right to use the money in any of your accounts or any of your other assets with us or any of our affiliates to pay your debts to us or our affiliates. This is called a right of “setoff.” This section explains our right of setoff.
If you ever owe us or any of our affiliates any money as a borrower, guarantor, depositor or otherwise, and such amount becomes due to us or our affiliates, or if we reasonably believe that the amount may be owed to us or our affiliates (even if it is ultimately determined that the amount is not owed), we have the right under law and under this Agreement to pay the debt by using the money from any of your accounts or other assets with us or our affiliates. The only exceptions are that this right of setoff does not apply (a) to funds in a Traditional or Roth IRA or other tax-deferred retirement account, or (b) when the debtor’s right of withdrawal from the account or access to another asset held with us only arises in a representative capacity.
Our right of setoff can arise in several different ways. For example, we have this right of setoff if you fail to maintain sufficient funds in your Card Account for your transactions or if you otherwise fail to timely pay your debts to us or one of our affiliates. If we do exercise this right of setoff, it will be exercised against your accounts and assets in the following order of priority to the extent permitted by law: (a) liquid assets in another of your accounts with us or with any of our affiliates, (b) any matured certificate of deposit (CD) awaiting rollover or payment to you, (c) any other CD held with us, and (d) any fully paid securities in any account held with us or one of our affiliates.
We may setoff the funds in your accounts or other assets with us against any due and payable debt owed to us now or in the future by any of you (any of the account or asset owners) having the right of withdrawal in the accounts or right to the asset, to the extent of such person’s or legal entity’s right to withdraw or obtain the asset. We may use the money from your accounts to pay the debt even if our withdrawal of the money from your accounts results in a loss of interest, an interest penalty, dishonor of checks, or transaction charges. You understand and agree that any such transaction charges will be in addition to any fees assessed to your account for insufficient funds. Additionally, you understand that you may be subject to monetary penalties if a CD, which has not matured, must be liquidated to cover any overdraft.
You agree to hold us, our affiliates, and each of our respective officers, directors, employees and agents harmless from any claim or liability arising as a result of our exercise of our right of setoff. You hereby appoint us as your true and lawful agent and attorney-in-fact, with full power to act in your name and on your behalf, with respect to the execution of all instruments and the taking of all action necessary or desirable to effectuate the rights and remedies provided in this Account Agreement and by applicable law.
24. Legal Process. If we are served with any legal process which affects the Card, we may, without liability, suspend transactions on the Card which we believe to be affected thereby until final determination of such legal proceeding or appropriate resolution of the adverse claim, even though the suspension of payment may have been due to inadvertence, error on account of similarity of names of account owners, or other mistake. We shall not be liable for any damages to you by reason thereof, provided that we acted in good faith. Attachments, garnishments, levies and the like shall be subject to fees assessed by us and our security interest and right of set off. You acknowledge and agree that we may collect fees associated with the processing of these orders from the Card for a period of up to six months. Fees may apply; see the Long Form Disclosure section of this agreement.
25. Amendments. Subject to applicable law, we may amend or change the terms of this Agreement at any time. You will be notified of any change in the manner provided by applicable law prior to the effective date of the change. However, if the change is made for security purposes, we can implement such a change without prior notice. Any changes to this Agreement will be effective on the date we mail or otherwise provide them to you or on the date we otherwise specify in a notice. By using your Card thereafter, you agree to any changes. If you do not agree to any change in the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you must discontinue your use of the Card and cancel the Card as set forth in Section 26, “Termination of Agreement; Cancellation of Cards.”
26. Termination of Agreement; Cancellation of Cards. We may cancel or suspend your Card or this Agreement at any time. You may cancel this Agreement by returning the Card to us. Your termination of this Agreement will not affect any of our rights or your obligations arising under this Agreement prior to termination.
If your Card is cancelled, upon your request we can send you a check for all remaining funds after deducting any fees, charges and outstanding transactions.
27. FDIC Insurance. Card funds are FDIC insured on a pass-through basis, subject to the FDIC’s rules and regulations and applicable limits.
28. Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed by applicable federal laws and, to the extent not preempted by federal law, the law of the State of Georgia without regard to conflicts of law principles regarding laws of other states.
29. Entire Agreement; Severability. This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding and agreement between you and us, whether written or oral, with respect to its subject matter and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements with respect to their subject matter. If any of the terms of this Agreement are invalid, or declared invalid by order of court, change in applicable law, or regulatory authority, the remaining terms of this Agreement shall not be affected, and this Agreement shall be interpreted as if the invalid terms had not been included in this Agreement.
30. Limited Liability. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE REQUIRED BY LAW OR THIS AGREEMENT, WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR: DELAYS OR MISTAKES RESULTING FROM ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ACTS OF GOVERNMENTAL AUTHORITIES, NATIONAL EMERGENCIES, INSURRECTION, WAR, OR RIOTS; THE FAILURE OF MERCHANTS TO HONOR THE CARD; THE FAILURE OF MERCHANTS TO PERFORM OR PROVIDE SERVICES; COMMUNICATION SYSTEM FAILURES; OR FAILURES OR MALFUNCTIONS ATTRIBUTABLE TO YOUR EQUIPMENT, ANY INTERNET SERVICE, OR ANY PAYMENT SYSTEM. IN THE EVENT THAT WE ARE HELD LIABLE TO YOU, YOU WILL ONLY BE ENTITLED TO RECOVER YOUR ACTUAL DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL YOU BE ENTITLED TO RECOVER ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY OR SPECIAL DAMAGES (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE), EVEN IF YOU HAVE ADVISED US OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THIS PROVISION SHALL NOT BE EFFECTIVE TO THE EXTENT OTHERWISE REQUIRED BY LAW. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU AGREE THAT YOUR RECOVERY FOR ANY ALLEGED NEGLIGENCE OR MISCONDUCT BY US SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE TOTAL AMOUNT LOADED ON THE CARD.

33. ARBITRATION PROVISION
Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes
(a) Purpose: This Section 33 sets forth the circumstances and procedures under which Claims (as defined below) that arise between you and us will be resolved through BINDING ARBITRATION instead of litigated in court. THIS MEANS THAT IF EITHER YOU OR WE ELECT TO RESOLVE A CLAIM BY ARBITRATION, NEITHER YOU NOR WE WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE THAT CLAIM IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL ON THAT CLAIM, OR TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED FOR IN THE RULES (AS DEFINED BELOW). OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO APPEAL AND YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR AS A MEMBER OF ANY CLASS OF CLAIMANTS PERTAINING TO ANY CLAIM SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION. EXCEPT AS SET FORTH BELOW, THE ARBITRATOR’S DECISION WILL BE FINAL AND BINDING. NOTE THAT OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. Nothing in this provision precludes you from filing and pursuing your individual Claim in a small claims court in your state or municipality, so long as that Claim is pending only in that court.
(b) Scope: We each agree that all claims arising out of or related to this Agreement ("Claims") will be submitted exclusively to binding arbitration as set forth in this Section. This agreement to arbitrate applies to all Claims that could have been filed in court regarding the Claims, whether you or we are the first to file a Claim with the arbitral tribunal and whether the Claims are against you or us, or ours or your employees, agents, contractors or suppliers. This agreement to arbitrate covers all Claims under this Agreement, regardless of whether such Claim is based in contract, tort, statute, regulation, common law or equity, including, but not limited to, Claims arising out of or related to: (1) the validity, enforceability or scope of this Arbitration Provision or this Agreement; (2) the interpretation, execution, administration, amendment or modification of the Agreement; (3) any alleged breach of this Agreement or tort, (4) the Card, any transaction, Card benefits, features or services (whether provided by us or another service provider), any advertisement or solicitation, or your business, interaction or relationship with us; (5) any charge or cost incurred pursuant to the Agreement or the collection of any amounts due under the Agreement; and (6) any statements or representations made by us to you with respect to the Agreement, the Card, any transaction, Card benefits, features or services (whether provided by us or another service provider) or any advertisement or solicitation, or your business, interaction or relationship with us. The parties agree that disputes regarding (i) the enforceability of the class action waiver, and/or (ii) whether the arbitration provision provides for class arbitration, shall be outside the scope of this Arbitration Provision.
(c) Opt out Process: You may choose to opt out of the Arbitration Provision, but only by following the process set-forth herein. If you do not wish to be subject to this Arbitration Provision, then you must notify us in writing within sixty (60) calendar days of the issuance of your Card at the following address: Cardholder Services, PO Box 1109, Sikeston, MO 63801. Your written notice must include your name, address, account number and a statement that you wish to opt out of this Arbitration Provision.
(d) Initiation of Arbitration Proceeding/Selection of Administrator: Any Claim shall be resolved, upon the election by you or us, by arbitration pursuant to this Section 33 and the code of procedures of the national arbitration organization to which the Claim is referred in effect at the time the Claim is filed (“Rules”), except to the extent that the Rules conflict with this Agreement. Claims shall be referred to either the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”) or the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as selected by the party electing to initiate arbitration. If a selection by us of one of these organizations is unacceptable to you, you shall have the right within 30 days after you receive notice of our election to select the other organization listed to serve as arbitrator administrator. For a copy of the procedures, to file a Claim or for other information about these organizations, contact them as follows: (i) JAMS at 1920 Main Street, Suite 310, Irvine, CA 92614, website at www.jamsadr.com; or (ii) AAA at 315 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10017, website at www.adr.org. Please note that any reference to either AAA or JAMS rules shall not be deemed a delegation of class arbitrability issues to the arbitrator.
(e) Class Action Waiver and Other Restrictions: If either party elects to resolve a Claim by arbitration, that Claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis. There shall be no right or authority for any Claims to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on bases involving Claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public, other Cardholders or other persons similarly situated. The arbitrator’s authority to resolve Claims is limited to Claims between you and us alone, and the arbitrator’s authority to make awards is limited to you and us alone. Furthermore, Claims brought by you against us or by us against you may not be joined or consolidated in arbitration with Claims brought by or against someone other than you, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by all parties. No arbitration award or decision will have any preclusive effect as to issues or claims in any Dispute with anyone who is not a named party to the arbitration. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement (including the "Survival; Severability” provision below), and without waiving either party’s right of appeal, if any portion of this "Class Action Waiver and Other Restrictions” provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable, then the entire Section 33 (other than this sentence) shall not apply.
(f) Location of Arbitration/Payment of Fees: Any arbitration hearing that you attend shall take place in the federal judicial district of your residence. At your written request, we will consider in good faith making a temporary advance of all or part of the filing administrative and/or hearing fees for any Claim you initiate as to which you or we seek arbitration. Waivers may also be available from the JAMS or AAA. At the conclusion of the arbitration (or any appeal thereof), the arbitrator (or panel) will decide who will ultimately be responsible for paying the filing, administrative and/or hearing fees in connection with the arbitration (or appeal). If and to the extent you incur filing, administrative and/or hearing fees in arbitration, including for any appeal, exceeding the amount they would have been if the Claim had been brought in the state or federal court which is closest to your billing address and would have had jurisdiction over the Claim, we will reimburse you to that extent unless the arbitrator (or panel) determines that the fees were incurred without any substantial justification.
(g) Arbitration Procedures: This Section 33 is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Sections 1-16, as it may be amended (the “FAA”), and the applicable Rules, except that (to the extent enforceable under the FAA) this Section 33 shall control if it is inconsistent with the applicable Rules. The arbitrator shall apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law and, at the timely request of either party, shall provide a brief written explanation of the basis for the decision. In conducting the arbitration proceeding, the arbitrator shall not apply the Federal or any state rules of civil procedure or rules of evidence. Either party may submit a request to the arbitrator to expand the scope of discovery allowable under the applicable Rules. The party submitting such a request must provide a copy to the other party, who may submit objections to the arbitrator with a copy of the objections provided to the request party, within fifteen (15) days of receiving the requesting party’s notice. The granting or denial of such request will be in the sole discretion of the arbitrator who shall notify the parties of his/her decision within twenty (20) days of the objecting party’s submission. The arbitrator shall take reasonable steps to preserve the privacy of individuals, and of business matters. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitrator’s decision will be final and binding, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA. However, any party can appeal that award to a three-arbitrator panel administered by the same arbitration organization, which shall consider anew any aspect of the initial award objected to by the appealing party. The appealing party shall have thirty (30) days from the date of entry of the written arbitration award to notify the arbitration organization that it is exercising the right of appeal. The appeal shall be filed with the arbitration organization in the form of a dated writing. The arbitration organization will then notify the other party that the award has been appealed. The arbitration organization will appoint a three- arbitrator panel which will conduct arbitration pursuant to its Rules and issue its decision within one hundred twenty (120) days of the date of the appellant’s written notice. The decision of the panel shall be by majority vote and shall be final and binding.
(h) Survival; Severability: This Section 33 shall survive termination of this Agreement, your Card or the relationship between you and us concerning your Card, any permitted transfer, sale or assignment of your Card, or any amounts owed on your Card, to any other person or entity as well as voluntary payment of any debt in full by you, any legal proceeding by or between you and us to collect a debt owed by you, and any bankruptcy by you or us. If any portion of this Section 33, except the "Class Action Waiver and Other Restrictions” provision above, is deemed invalid or unenforceable for any reason, it shall not invalidate the remaining portions of this Section 33, the Agreement or any prior agreement you may have had with us, each of which shall be enforceable regardless of such invalidity.
