It’s A Paperless, Paperless World..... Thinking Outside the Box to Gain Efficiencies through Prepaid Cards

April 23
Duration: 1 hour

Public sector organizations are under intense scrutiny to operate as efficiently and effectively as possible and with maximum transparency. An important consideration is the way in which payments are made and managed. Prepaid cards can offer flexibility, security and accountability to governments as a method of dispersing benefits, healthcare and social care payments, child benefits and housing benefits to their constituents. 

Join GOVERNING and Bank of America Merrill Lynch for this webinar to explore the trends, future usage and problems solved with prepaid cards. You will learn about:

  • The impact of the new regulatory environment
  • Thinking outside the box for applications for prepaid card uses for your constituents
  • Where financial reform laws are taking us in regards to prepaid card
  • Facing the challenges of the chip and pin rollout
  • The Houston Housing Authority’s successful  card program
