Your PIN or Personal Identification Number is a secret four-digit code that gives access to your card account. Always keep it separate from your card, and never tell it to anyone. Your PIN is ready to use as soon as you activate your card.
No. It’s a prepaid debit card. Each time you use the debit card, the purchase or withdrawal amount is deducted from the amount available in your account. There is no routing number attached to the card.
Since no credit is being extended, a credit check is not required but Chase does do an identity verification. Please send your social security card, license, passport, and/or birth certificate along with your enrollment forms in order to be sure that your identity can be verified.
No minimum balance is required to keep the account open.
No. Your account does not earn interest.
If so, will the charge be added to my withdrawal? Most ATMs charge non-customers a service fee or surcharge between 50 cents and $1.50 for using the ATM. This amount will be deducted directly from your account at the time of withdrawal. You can avoid ATM surcharges by using a Chase, Bank One, and other surcharge-free ATMs. Look for the Allpoint logo on ATMs at Target stores nationwide. You can also find Allpoint logos regionally at many grocery and convenience stores. For a full list of Allpoint locations in your area go to www.allpointnetwork.com  and type in your ZIP code.
*PLEASE NOTE*: If the surcharge screen appears during your Allpoint ATM transaction, enter “yes” to accept the surcharge and proceed with your withdrawal. You will not be charged the surcharge fee, which you can verify by checking the ATM transaction receipt.

You can access the full amount of your funds by requesting cash back when making a point-of-sale debit purchase (for example, at a supermarket).

Your Chase card will expire on its expiration date found on your card. You may call to cancel your account any time after your position ends. If you will be serving with SCA in the future, you can keep your card active for later use.
The Chase e-Funds program allows you to withdraw all of your funds in a single day (up to $3,000 for ATM and PIN-based purchases combined) and to spend up to $5,000 per day via signature-based purchases. Remember that individual ATM’s vary regarding the amount they allow you to withdraw at one time.
Since your card has a Visa logo, you will be able to use your Chase e-Funds card for both transactions. For online purchases you must use the zip code of the address on your statement.

It has been brought to our attention that SCA interns have been experiencing problems using their Chase e-Funds cards, particularly at gas pumps and resturants. We've been working diligently with JP Morgan Chase to resolve this issue.
If you experience any problems using your Chase e-Funds card, contact your SCA Program Representative. Please have the following information handy:
1. What state/town were you in when you attempted to use the e-Funds card?
2. What type of store?
3. What was the store's name?
4. Were you attempting to pay for gas? At the pump or in the store?
5. What time of day were you trying to use your card?
6. What type of error did you get? (i.e. invalid number, declined, insufficient fund)
7. Were you using credit or debit? (Did you try both?)
8. What was the dollar amount of the transaction at the time of error?
9. Did you ask for your card number to be entered manually? (Did this work or not?)
Paying at the pump may result in a decline. Instead, go inside, pay the attendant a specific amount before you pump, and sign the receipt.
When paying a restaurant tab, keep in mind that you may need to have enough in your account for the dining bill and a 15-20% tip for the transaction to be approved. You may also use an ATM prior to dining out and pay with cash.
