CUMONEY Visa: A Reloadable Debit Card Program to Suit Any Need

Prepaid reloadable debit cards are an increasingly popular option for consumers. According to Madeline Aufseeser, senior analyst with Aite Group, fee revenues for prepaid debit card products are projected to reach $1.7 billion by 2016. With 68 million unbanked or underbanked adults in the U.S. and an annual growth rate of 22% in reloadable prepaid cards (CUNA E-Scan Report 2013-2014), there are gains to be made in what some still consider unchartered territory and opens up new growth opportunity for credit unions.
