Will a credit check be performed when I apply for the card?
No, a credit check is not required to open an ABLE Visa® Prepaid Card. However, the federal government does require True Link to verify the identity of each cardholder who opens a Card account. When a Card account is opened, True Link will ask for the following information to attempt to verify the cardholder’s identity through an automated system:
Address (cannot be a PO Box)
Date of birth
Social Security number
Additionally, in the case that an Authorized Legal Representative (ALR) is serving as card administrator, True Link will request information from the ALR during Step 3 of the ABLE Visa Prepaid Card application.
