How do I set up direct deposit for my child?

Now Greenlight teens and college students can have their paychecks automatically deposited onto their Greenlight cards. It’s convenient, safe, secure, and saves you a trip to the bank. On payday, their paychecks will automatically be deposited onto their Greenlight card in their “Spend Anywhere” Spend Control, even if they’re on vacation or out of town.

To set up direct deposit, call us at 888-483-2645.

We will ask for the following information:

1. Your Child’s Legal First Name

2. Your Child’s Legal Last Name

3. Your Child’s Employer Name

4. Parent/Approver Phone Number

Once verified, our team will provide the banking information your child’s employer will need to finish setting up their direct deposit.

Please note: Direct deposits must be from the child's employer and in the child's name. We are unable to set up direct deposit for State or Federal agencies including Social Security, Federal or State tax refunds, child support, etc. We are also unable to take deposits from Apple Cash, Paypal, Venmo, etc.
