West Milford, NJ. (PRWEB) March 05, 2013
TFG Card Solutions, a leader in payroll card services, has partnered with Vacamas Programs for Youth to provide a cost-saving benefit to its camp staff. Employees without a bank account are provided with a Visa® payroll debit card to receive their paycheck via direct deposit.
Vacamas hires its camp staff across the U.S. and throughout the world to serve as counselors, tutors, and child care workers throughout the summer. Secluded from banks and check cashing stores, their staffers were issued paper checks with no access to their pay. Their international employees, who do not have a bank account within the US and do not carry identification that is acceptable to a bank, were often denied access to their money.
After implementing the TFG Visa® Prepaid Payroll Card, the payroll administrators were able to pay all unbanked employees, including their international staff with direct deposit. As a result, their unbanked employees are able to make purchases from millions of merchants accepting Visa® debit cards, get free Cash Back with PIN-based purchases, withdraw cash at ATMs and avoid high check-cashing fees.
“The TFG Visa® Prepaid Payroll Card allows us to pay our seasonal and international employees in minutes, freeing up time for our staff to pursue other tasks at hand,” said Deborah Giambatista, Payroll Manager at Vacamas. “Our employees, banked or unbanked, don’t have to worry about getting a ride to the nearest bank to cash their paper check. When the funds are loaded on the card, our employees have immediate access to their pay.”
TFG has been offering U.S. employers payroll debit cards to increase direct deposit participation since 2004. Payroll cards provide unbanked employees a safe, secure, and convenient way to access their funds 24/7/365. TFG provides payroll debit cards to many companies in various industries located all over the country.
“Vacamas Programs for Youth is an excellent example of how an organization can truly benefit from prepaid payroll cards and 100% direct deposit participation,” adds Tom Secor, President of TFG Card Solutions, Inc. “TFG’s prepaid payroll card solution allows employees without a bank account to change the way they conduct personal banking in a low and no cost manner.”
