If we cannot verify your identity, address and/or any other relevant information provided by you with satisfactory certainty at the time you apply for an Account we will issue you with a Restricted Account. The Restricted Account limits are a total spending limit of £1,600 per each calendar year (each and every 12 months period) of which no more than £600 can be in cash withdrawals or a single debit Transaction; and you may load a maximum of £600 into your Account at any one time, subject to yearly spending limits (fees may apply, see paragraph 12).
If you are issued with a Restricted Account, you will have the option to upgrade to a non-Restricted Account by providing satisfactory documentation as proof of identity, address and other relevant information (fees may apply, see paragraph 12).
You agree that we may communicate with you by e-mail or via the Website for issuing any notices or information about your Account or Card and therefore it is important that you provide a valid e-mail address. Additionally, your Transaction history and statements are made available to you in the Website.
Up to two Cards with different names can be issued in respect of each Card Account at any one time and both applicants must be residing at the same address (all cards will be sent to the Union member's address).
Your Card will be posted to the address provided by you when you applied. You should receive your Card within 14 days of application.
When you receive your Card(s), you (and any additional named Cardholder) must sign it immediately and must then call Customer Services (as detailed in paragraph 21) to activate it. Please note that your Card (or any additional Card) cannot be used until it has been activated. When you call Customer Services you will need to select the 'Card Activation' option from the menu. You will then be asked to enter your Card Number and your Activation Code which you will find on the letter that came with your Card. You will also be asked to provide certain personal details to confirm your identity.
You will be given a 4 digit PIN when you activate your Card. You should keep your PIN secure at all times. We will not reveal your PIN to a third party. If you forget your PIN, you can reset it by calling Customer Services.
You can change your PIN at any UK ATM that has a PIN change facility available. When you select or change your PIN, you must not select a PIN that can be easily guessed, such as, for example, a number that:
is easily associated with you, such as your telephone number or birth date;
is part of data imprinted on the Card;
consists of the same digits or a sequence of running digits; or
is identical to the previously selected PIN.
USING YOUR CARD
Your Card can be used at any Merchant displaying the MasterCard Acceptance Mark.
You can authorise Transactions on your Card at any Merchant by entering your PIN or other security code. If the Merchant does not accept chip and PIN authorisation, the Merchant may allow you to authorise the Transaction by signature of the receipt. Please be aware that you may not usually stop a Transaction once it has been authorised as at that point it is deemed to be received by us. You will be responsible for all Transactions where you or any additional Cardholder authorises such Transaction, regardless of the manner of such authorisation.
Your Card is a prepaid card, which means that the Card's Available Balance will be reduced by the full amount of each Transaction and/or authorisation, plus any taxes and charges that are applicable (the 'Full Deductible Amount'). In order for a Transaction to be authorised, the Full Deductible Amount must be less than or equal to the Available Balance on your Card. You must not use your Card if the Full Deductible Amount exceeds the Available Balance or after the expiry date of the Card. If, for any reason, a Transaction is processed for an amount greater than the Available Balance on your Card, you must either top-up your card with an amount sufficient to take your Card back into credit immediately you are notified of the deficit, or repay the Programme Manager the amount by which the Full Deductible Amount exceeds your Available Balance within 14 days of receiving an invoice from them. Should you not repay this amount within 14 days of receiving an invoice from the Programme Manager, they reserve the right to take all steps necessary, including legal action, to recover any monies outstanding.
You can check your Available Balance at any time by calling Customer Services, by SMS or via the Website. You can check your Transaction history at any time by calling Customer Services, or via the Website.
Due to security safeguards, Merchants that accept your Card are required to seek authorisation from us for all Transactions you make. There are some circumstances where Merchants may require you to have an Available Balance greater than the value of the Transaction you wish to make. You will only be charged for the actual and final value of the Transaction you make. Merchants request this as they may need to access more funds than you initially planned to spend. For example:
Hotels and rental cars - As Merchants may not be able to accurately predict how much your final bill will be, they may request an authorisation for funds greater than your Available Balance
Internet Merchants - Certain Internet Merchant sites will, on registration or at checkout stage, send a request for payment authorisation to verify if funds are available; this will temporarily impact your Available Balance. Also please bear in mind that many sites won't deduct payment until goods are dispatched so please be aware of these variances on cleared funds when checking your Available Balance and ensure that you have sufficient funds on your Card to cover your purchases.
In-transit and similar purchases - You may be unable to use your Card where Merchants cannot obtain an online authorisation from us. Examples include Transactions made on-board ships or trains, in-flight purchases, and some remote terminals designed for rapid low value Transactions (eg motorway tolls).
Self service petrol pumps - Your Card cannot be used at self service petrol pumps. You can use your Card to pay by taking it to the cashier.
Your Card should not be used as a form of identification. We will decline any authorisation requests from Merchants using your Card for identification purposes.
You may use your Card to obtain cash worldwide in an emergency from any ATM that displays the MasterCard Acceptance Mark. There is a daily cash withdrawal limit of £250 (or equivalent in a foreign currency) per Account however the ATM provider may have a reduced limit and may charge additional fees. Transaction fees apply (see paragraph 12).
You may not use your Card to obtain traveller's cheques, to obtain cash back from any Merchant, to settle outstanding balances on credit cards, bank overdrafts or credit agreements, to pay for memberships or subscriptions by direct debit or for online gambling and betting transactions.
The Available Balance on your Account will not earn any interest.
We may request you to surrender the Card at anytime in accordance with paragraph 16 of these terms and conditions. Where we do so, we will give you back your e-money in accordance with paragraph 8 of these terms and conditions (free of any redemption fee).
For Cardholders under 18 years of age the following applies:
Before applying, any applicant under 18 years of age must have obtained approval from a parent or guardian.
Cards must not be used for any purpose for which the minimum age is 18 or lower, for example gambling, adult entertainment and purchase of alcohol.
We will monitor activity on Cards issued to customers under 18 years of age. Any use of the Card which is considered to be unlawful may result in the Account being suspended in accordance with paragraph 16
We reserve the right to request proof of age at any time. Failure to provide satisfactory proof of age may also result in the Account being suspended.
TOPPING UP YOUR CARD
All top ups are subject to the following:
The minimum value of a top up on a main Card Account is £10.
The maximum amount that can be added to the Available Balance on a Card Account in a single top-up is £1,000. This amount is reduced to a maximum amount of £600 if you have a Restricted Account; there is a daily top-up limit of two single load Transactions per day. If you attempt to exceed this daily limit or the maximum Available Balance limit, we will refund any additional funds to you by cheque.
If you have a non-Restricted Card the Available Balance on a Card Account cannot exceed £4,000;
If you have a Restricted Account the Available Balance on a Card Account cannot exceed £1,600,
Top-up fees may apply - for further details please refer to paragraph 12 below.
Your Account can be topped up in the following ways:
By loading your wages or direct debit (fees may apply. See paragraph 12). The maximum value you may top up your Account each time is £600 for a Restricted Card (subject to a maximum balance of £1,600 and yearly spend limits set out in paragraph 3.1) or £1,000 for a non-Restricted Card and the minimum is £10
By debit card (fees may apply, see paragraph 12). It is necessary that the top-up debit cards have been registered with 3D secure verification through your bank account. The maximum value you may top your Card if you hold a Restricted Card is £600, or £1,000 if you hold a non-Restricted Card.
Within any Post Office® branch or PayPoint outlet. You will need to hand over your Card and your payment to the value you wish to top-up. Your Card will either be swiped or scanned and the top-up completed. Remember to get your receipt as this is your proof of purchase. The maximum top-up via any Post Office® branch is £500 each time. The maximum top-up via any PayPoint outlet is £499. Fees apply for top-ups made at both Post Office® and PayPoint locations (please see paragraph 12) however, PayPoint top-ups will usually be credited to your Available Balance immediately.
The maximum number of top ups permitted in a single day is 2.
We reserve the right to suspend or terminate the right to top up your Account at anytime without notice.
We do not accept liability caused by the delay in applying top ups where you have failed to correctly reference your Account or Card number, the receiving bank account, or other requested details for applying such top ups.
The registered address of the bank account used to top up your Card must match the registered address for your Card Account. You will be unable to top up your Card from a bank account that does not meet this criterion. We reserve the right to suspend or permanently remove your ability to top up your Card at any time without notice.
We do not accept liability for top ups where you have failed to correctly reference your Account or Card number, the receiving bank account, or other required details.

If we need to make operational changes before we can fully comply with the new regulatory requirement, we will make those changes as soon as practical. We will update our terms and conditions to reflect the new regulatory requirements when they are next reprinted.
