Hello guys…welcome to 2021. I must confess, 2020 has been quite a year that’ll not be forgotten so quickly by many. With so many countries’ economies taking a toll, and not to talk of the entire world being on a standstill, many countries including America had to set up economic Impact payments as well as other grants to keep its citizens going in the midst of the pandemic.
Whilst some of those benefits were being dispensed through traditional paper checks, a large chunk of it was disbursed via bank deposits and Direct Express to cater to Americans including those that do not have a bank account. Part of the means for Americans to receive government benefits is through the Turbo Visa Debit Card which I’m going to be talking about in a bit. I know you’re here to get your Turbo card activated, and while I’ll teach you how to achieve that, I’ll also show you other things you can do with your Turbo card that I’m sure you don’t already know.
Firstly, as it is glaringly clear for all, the Turbo Visa Debit Card is a card with which you can use to receive your tax returns, government benefits such as social security, supplemental security income, and veterans. Turbo boast of fast processing of payments where cardholders can have access to their cash in as early as 2 days after it has been disbursed. This is probably the best you can get out there, as many providers have been known for slow processing of payments.
Aside from this, do you know you can also receive your payroll via your Turbo card? Yea, you can! And you can do so much more with your card such as paying your utility bills, saving, file your tax, shopping for stuff online or in-store, amongst others.
Accessing your funds from your Turbo card is very seamless as Turbotax has a nationwide network of free ATMs where you can withdraw at more than 18,000 locations across the United States. Also, the Turbo prepaid card has a daily withdrawal limit of $400 which is quite OK when compared to other providers of the same service.
The Turbo® Visa® Debit Card is been offered by Green Dot Bank, which is a member of the FDIC.
