The Chase Payroll Card Program Overview


 


Chase Payroll Card Overview

 

Lowe’s now offers you a new and very convenient way to get your pay. You may choose to have your pay automatically deposited into a Chase Payroll Card account instead of receiving a check.

 

The Chase Payroll Card is a Visa debit card (not a credit card), that can be used for purchases everywhere Visa is accepted and to get cash at ATMs all over the world. Every employee qualifies for this card. There is no credit check or bank approval required. All employees are pre-approved for this card program!

 

You may get your pay this easy new way by simply completing a brief application form and faxing it to the Lowe’s Payroll Department at 1-336-658-2606.

 

Giving You Many Important Benefits

 

Pay Automatically Available

 

Through direct deposit your pay is automatically available in your Chase account every payday. You will no longer need to wait in long lines to cash or deposit a payroll check and will not need to make a special trip to your job location to receive your payroll check. And you can check your balance any time – by phone at 1-866-222-5704 or through the Internet at www.myaccount.chase.com or through My Lowe's Life / My Wealth / Payroll Card Website for FREE!

 

Worldwide Acceptance and Access to Cash

 

The Chase Payroll Card can be used at more than 22 million places Visa is accepted, as well as for online purchases. You can also use your card to get cash at more than 40,000 ATMs worldwide. Many locations that accept debit/ATM cards offer you the option of getting cash back while making purchases, eliminating the need to go out of your way to find an ATM. This is the preferred option to get cash verses using an ATM because there is no limit to the number of times per month you can get cash back through a point-of-purchase sale like there is for using an ATM! The card is perfect for paying bills and making everyday purchases like groceries, gas, and clothes as well as for travel or larger purchases.

 

Saves Time and Money

 

You can avoid check-cashing fees and will not need to wait in line to cash a check. Check-cashing services are often expensive, costing you 1-3% of your pay. Buying money orders to pay bills can cost about $2.00 each. In total, a Chase Payroll Card might save you up to $30.00 per month if you’re using check-cashing and money order services.

 

If you need to get access to a large portion or all of your net pay in cash, your FIRST Cash Advance is now FREE each pay period! Simply visit any bank that displays the VISA logo on their door and provide the teller the amount of cash you need equal to your net pay or less.

 

Card Program for Employees Only                     

 

This card is for employee use only. Each employee can have only one active card in use at a time.

 

Provides Extra Security

 

Your Chase Payroll Card helps eliminate the need to carry large sums of cash or to buy money orders. You’re also protected if your card is ever lost or stolen because your money is stored in your account, not on your card. Just notify Chase Customer Support. Your old card will be cancelled and a new one issued.

 

In addition, your account has the added protection of being FDIC-insured.

 

Helps to Track Spending

 

Keeping track of spending is easy. Your transaction history is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at www.myaccount.chase.com, by phone, and on My Lowe's Life / My Wealth / Payroll Card Website too.

 

Using the Chase Payroll Card

 

Purchases

 

You can use the card to make purchases at any merchant displaying the Visa logo. Additionally, you can use the card at any point-of-sale location that accepts NYCE, Pulse or Interlink debit services. Visually, the Chase Payroll Card is identical to any other Visa card.

 

For a phone, mail order or internet purchase, just provide your card number and expiration date.

 

ATM Usage

Your card can be used at any ATM that displays the    Cirrus Brand Mark, NYCE, Allpoint, Credit Card Companies - Visa Credit Card - Global Visa Sites or Pulse logos. To use the card at an ATM, you insert the card in the machine and follow the on screen instructions. Enter your PIN, select a withdrawal amount, and request a receipt. On some machines, you will need to select "checking" as the product from which the withdrawal is being made (as opposed to "savings" or "credit").

 

If you need to use an ATM, you should try to use a CHASE or Allpoints ATM. Owners of other ATM’s can levy a surcharge for using their ATM. To find the nearest Allpoints ATM, go to www.allpointnetwork.com. To find a CHASE ATM, go to www.chase.com.

 

You cannot make deposits to a Chase Payroll Card account. Deposits can only be made through the Lowe's payroll process.

 

You are limited by the number of free ATM withdrawals as explained in the application. You can get cash back at POP (“Point-of-Purchase”) sales locations like the grocery store, Wal-Mart, etc. when you use your debit card and your PIN without ever being charged a fee! Get in the habit of getting your cash from POP locations and keep your free ATM use only for an emergency.
