Payroll Choices

The Payroll Choices Program is an exciting new payroll solution that gives you the option to receive your pay via direct deposit or a Visa® Payroll Card with Pre-Check® option. This program will provide you with flexible, convenient and secure ways to access your pay eliminating the need to issue paper checks.

Payroll Card

The Payroll Card is a reloadable Visa debit card issued to you in place of paper payroll checks. Your pay is automatically loaded to your Payroll Card account every pay day.

With the Payroll Choices Card, you have many fee-free ways to access your pay:

  • Retail, online and phone purchases anywhere Visa debit is accepted
  • Thousands of surcharge-free ATMs
  • Over the counter cash withdrawals at banks that display the Visa logo
  • Pre-Check option

Pre-Check Option

The Pre-Check option is a check that draws off of your Payroll Card account balance. It provides you with access to part or all of your balance with no program fees. Pre-Checks can be cashed at over 6,000 locations nationwide or can be deposited into your own bank account. Two Pre-Check forms are included with your Payroll Card Welcome Kit, and they are automatically replenished upon use. There are also specific How-to-Use instructions that accompany the Pre-Checks to assist you.
