Looking to make fund accessibility somewhat easier on those receiving aid through certain programs, some financial assistances through local and federal governments offer easy monetary access through the Chase UCard program. This collaborative effort between Chase Bank and the government allows those who are receiving money the chance to immediately use the funds as soon as they are paid rather than having to deal with cashing checks or having a personal bank account set up.
If you recently received a Chase UCard in the mail to receive state or federal benefits, the instructions in this guide will help you get it set up and ready to use, which includes getting an online account created to manage and view your funds online through the card’s dedicated website through Chase Bank.
