There is no easier way to add money to your nFinanSe Visa card than by direct deposit, and since there is no fee for the service, it is also the most economical. It will also save you time, since there is no need to make a trip just to cash your check or add funds to your card.
Keep in mind that recurring direct deposits may take one or two pay cycles to establish. In the meantime, open pay envelopes to see if you have a check you must cash or a non-negotiable notice of direct deposit.
How to arrange to have your Monthly Government Benefits Applied using Direct Deposit
Government agencies such as Social Security or the VA can deposit your payments directly to your nFinanSe card should you so desire. There are two ways to accomplish this, so choose the one most comfortable for you.
The government maintains a website for you to register for direct deposit. It is www.GoDirect.gov. You will need the routing number and account number for your nFinanSe account. Some agencies also require the amount of the last benefit payment you received and/or its check number, while others may ask for your claim number.
You can mail a completed direct deposit authorization form to the agency that issues your payments.
You can use the direct deposit form that you received with your nFinanSe card, or you can print one out from the nFinanSe website. Simply log in to your online account at www.nFinanSe.com and follow the links to add money by direct deposit.

Almost all employers make direct deposit a payment option for their employees. If yours does, you only need to complete a direct deposit authorization form and return it to your company’s payroll department.
A direct deposit form should have been included with the nFinanSe card you received in the mail. If you no longer have this form, you can go to the nFinanSe website, log in to your account, and then follow the prompts to add money by direct deposit.
If your employer is using nFinanSe Pay Cards, your employer will automatically transfer your payroll earnings to your Pay Card.
