Withdrawing cash from a prepaid card

You can easily withdraw cash or your 2021 tax refund from a prepaid reloadable card from ATMs.

Simply set up a PIN when activating your card. There may be limits on how much you can withdraw, or a small fee for checking your balance and taking out money at ATMs. It’s always best to check when you buy your prepaid card or with the card provider directly.
