Enjoy the unrivaled purchasing power of Visa with a prepaid, reloadable BB&T MoneyAccount.
It's the smart way to manage and protect your money.
What are the advantages of a MoneyAccount?
Your MoneyAccount card can be used just like any Visa debit card, and is accepted at millions of places worldwide, online or by phone. You can easily get cash or add money to your account, and enjoy 100% Visa fraud protection with FDIC insurance. With BB&T Online you can access your account anytime, anywhere you have an Internet connection.
Who should get the MoneyAccount?
The MoneyAccount is ideal if you want the spending power of a Visa debit card but don't want to pay a lot in fees or risk overdrawing your account:
Budget-minded clients can enjoy the convenience and safety a Visa debit card provides while limiting spending to only the money they have available.
Students and young adults can use MoneyAccount to establish financial responsibility.
New customers with no prior banking relationships can be approved for MoneyAccount—no minimum credit score required.
Can I get a MoneyAccount card for another family member?
MoneyAccount cards are issued only to the person submitting the application.
Can I get a joint MoneyAccount?
Yes. You may apply with your spouse, child or anyone else that you would like to have as a co-applicant.
How do I sign up for a MoneyAccount?
Our MoneyAccount application process is quick and easy, and you'll get an online decision in minutes. Before you begin, gather the Social Security number, driver's license information, date of birth and current home address of any applicants, then apply online.
Will you obtain my credit report?
Yes. We'll review your credit report to help us prevent fraud and identity theft. However, your credit score or lack of credit history will not prevent you from opening a MoneyAccount.
How do I set up direct deposit?
After you apply for the MoneyAccount, print out the direct deposit form. (We'll even pre-fill most of the form for you.) Then, complete, sign and deliver it to your company/employer's payroll department.
You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print your direct deposit form. If you don't currently have Acrobat Reader installed, you may download it for free at your convenience.
Can I have my government benefits deposited to the account?
Yes, your Social Security, SSI, VA Compensation and Pension or other federal benefit payments can be deposited directly into your MoneyAccount. Once your MoneyAccount has been opened, visit Go Direct® to have your federal benefits deposited directly.
