With a Cashplus prepaid Gold Mastercard® you can receive your benefits directly into your account, and you’re 100% guaranteed* to get a card.
Easy way to receive your benefits
The account works just like a bank account and the Local Authority uses your unique 8 digit account number and Sort Code to send you bank transfers which means you’ll no longer have to wait in queues or cash cheques.
And, with the government’s introduction of Universal Credit next year most benefits recipients will receive their payments electronically, making the Cashplus Account an ideal solution for receiving these payments.
Here are two ways to get your money into an account
Pay-in your benefits
Give your account details to your local council or the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and benefits can be topped up directly into your account, including:
- Child Benefit
- Job Seeker’s Allowance
- Housing Benefit
- Disability Living Allowance
Pay in your own money
You can transfer money via bank transfer, or top up your account using cash at any UK Post Office branch and at over thousands of retail stores across the UK.
What’s more, the card’s account comes with secure online banking called Online Servicing, where you can view your statements 24 hours a day, 7 days a week:
- Check when benefits have been paid
- Review your spending and help you manage your budget
- Show that benefits have been spent as intended
