What is direct deposit and how does it work?

Direct deposit automatically places your kids and teens hard-earned paychecks onto their Greenlight Card. It’s convenient, safe, secure, and saves you a trip to the bank. On payday, their paychecks will automatically be deposited onto their Greenlight Card in their “Spend Anywhere” greenlight, even if they’re on vacation or out of town.

There are multiple ways to set up a direct deposit:
-Parents can set up direct deposit in the child settings of the parent’s app.
-Kids can set up direct deposit in the settings of their app.
-Parents or children can set up direct deposit online by clicking here!

Please note: all direct deposits must be from the child's employer and in the child's name. We currently do not accept direct deposit from the State or Federal Government, including Social Security payments, federal tax refunds, state tax refunds, child support, etc., or from Paypal, Venmo, Apple Cash, etc.

Is there a cost for Direct Deposit?
Nope! Direct deposit is free for all Greenlight Card customers.
