DETCOG Prepaid Debit Card

for Utility Reimbursements

Effective March 1, 2019

DETCOG's new Prepaid Debit Card is here! 

​Effective March 1, 2019, your Utility Reimbursement (UR) will be deposited directly onto a prepaid Visa Debit Card for your convenience!

Funds will be deposited into your account on the second business day of each month.  If you are currently receiving a quarterly reimbursement, deposits to your new prepaid Visa Debit Card will continue to be made quarterly until your next Annual Recertification; deposits will be made monthly thereafter.


DETCOG has partnered with U.S. Bank to issue your new prepaid Visa Debit card. Please take note that it will arrive by U.S. Mail in a plain, white envelope.  Once you receive your new card, activation is required. 

The prepaid Visa Debit Card is for families who qualify for and receive a monthly utility reimbursement.

We hope that you will enjoy the convenience that comes with this payment system including time savings and faster access to your funds.*

The prepaid Visa Debit Card offers:

  • Faster access to your funds as you will not need to wait for your check through mail

  • No need to go to a bank or check cashing company to cash a check

  • No inconvenience due to a lost check in the mail

  • You can use your card anywhere where VISA is accepted to make purchases, buy groceries, pay bills, and make online, phone or mail-order purchases

  • You can also get cash back with purchases at participating merchants or withdraw cash at ATMs, banks or credit unions

  • More security as funds can only be accessed using a password (PIN)

  • U.S. Bank representatives can assist you 24 hours per day and 7 days per week via
    internet and toll-free number


We hope this transition is as convenient as possible. For more information on your U.S. Bank prepaid Visa Debit Card call toll-free 1.855.282.6161.
