Some employers offer their employees a Money Network card, issued by MetaBank, as an alternative method of receiving their wages or salary on scheduled paydays. Instead of issuing paychecks, the employers deposit the payment to their employees' Money Network card accounts and the employees can immediately access it with their Money Network debit cards. A routing number is a nine-digit number that identifies a financial institution during a transaction. The routing number for a Money Network card makes it possible for you to set up direct deposits to the associated account, such as for paychecks, tax refunds and government benefits. This number is not listed on the card but you can obtain it in other ways.
Locating the Routing number
Each Money Network card displays a customer service number at the back. When you call, request the routing number from the service representative. Be prepared to supply information to verify your identity, such as your name, account number, the last four digits of your Social Security number and your current address. If you need the routing number faster, you can login to your account online and locate it on the page that provides general account information, the current balance and recent transactions. Also, you might find the routing number in the welcome package you received when you set up your account.
