How can I get my pay early with the Green Dot Prepaid Visa® Card?

Setting up direct deposit is easy! Just follow these simple steps: ​

  1. Ask your payroll or benefits provider if they offer direct deposit. ​
  2. If they do, text DD to 42586 or log into your account to get your bank routing number and account numbers.​
  3. Provide your account number and bank routing number to your payroll or benefits office.​
  4. The name and Social Security number on file with your employer or benefits provider must match your account exactly or we will decline your deposit.

TIP: Ask your payroll, how long it will take them to set up your direct deposit. If it takes longer than expected to receive your first direct deposit on your card, check back with your payroll or benefits office. Green Dot does not have any information about your enrollment status. Direct deposit early availability depends on timing of payor’s payment instructions and fraud prevention restrictions may apply. As such, the availability or timing of early direct deposit may vary from pay period to pay period. ​
