The Direct Express® Debit Mastercard has been helping Americans receive their federal benefit payments quickly, safely, and securely since 2008. Over that time, the prepaid debit card program has evolved but its mission has always remained the same: to provide Americans with a low- to no-cost way to receive their federal benefit payments electronically.

The Direct Express® program will host a webinar on Tuesday, February 8 at 1 p.m. ET that will highlight the story of how the program was created, the role it has played in providing an improved payment experience for federal beneficiaries, and how it has positively impacted the lives of millions of unbanked Americans. The webinar will feature Direct Express® cardholders explaining how the program has improved their financial lives as well as speakers from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Comerica Bank and Mastercard.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The evolution of prepaid debit cards in the United States.
  • The history and story of the Direct Express®
  • The importance of electronic payment options during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Enhancements to the program, including financial capability education.
