Debit cards and credit cards are a staple of any personal finance course. But there are some lesser-known cards that also play a role in modern financial lives.

In this module, you'll learn about:

  1. Payroll cards, issued by some employers as an alternative to a paycheck or direct deposit

  2. Prepaid cards, which can be loaded with money and used similar to a debit card but without a link to a bank account

  3. Secured credit cards, which require an upfront cash payment to secure the limit but which function like a credit card


NGPF On-Demand is asynchronous online PD you can do at any time! Each On-Demand module should take about 1 hour to complete. You can start and stop at any time and pick up where you left off. You will receive a certificate of completion after finishing the module.
