Child Care Assistance payments will be received electronically. Recipients may choose to have their payments deposited directly into their checking or savings account, or they may choose to receive the Conduent Way2Go card.

What is the Conduent Way2Go card?

The Way2Go card is a MasterCard® Prepaid Debit Card. The card can be used anywhere MasterCard Debit Cards are accepted. No credit check or bank account is required. Your payment will be electronically deposited using the same safe and dependable method as direct deposit.

Way2Go Card® features:

  • Easy to get – there is no cost to enroll, no credit checks* and no bank accounts required
  • Widely accepted – make purchases anywhere debit cards are accepted (in stores, restaurants, online, over the phone, etc.
  • Save time and money – no expensive check cashing fees or trips to the bank

What are the benefits of the Conduent Way2Go Card?

  • The card works like other prepaid or debit cards. Use it wherever MasterCard is accepted including grocery stores, retail stores, restaurants, medical offices, etc. The card can even be used to pay bills and for online, phone, and mail orders.
  • You can get cash from any MasterCard branded ATM, or over the counter at any bank or credit union, that accepts MasterCard. Many merchants, such as grocery stores, offer cash back with purchase at no additional charge.
