Choosing a Prepaid Card

The Choosing a Prepaid Card module, which includes a four-page fact sheet, a backgrounder written in question-and-answer format, a slide presentation for group trainings and a companion lesson plan with class activities, helps consumers determine if a prepaid card will meet their needs and, if so, how to compare options and choose the best one. The module offers detailed information about the types of fees that are common on prepaid cards, how to estimate the monthly cost of a card and how to manage the card to reduce or avoid fees.
