can be tricky to find the right balance between financial safety and
autonomy. True Link is here to
help – with our reloadable prepaid Visa card. Set up the restricted card for a family member or friend, and

We all need support in our lives, but the amount and type needed differs from person to person. With True Link Cards, you can choose the level of support that’s right for your unique situation. If things change, no problem. The support settings can change too!
With our user-friendly online dashboard, it's easy to customize the card and view purchases.

Ever wanted to give your loved one the independence and flexibility to make their own purchases? Now you can.
The True Link Card can be used by special needs trust beneficiaries who receive Supplemental Security Income, as long as the card is set up according to the guidelines provided by the Social Security Administration.
Your loved one can confidently use a True Link Card that allows only those expenses that don’t count as cash, food, or shelter. Purchases attempted at merchants or in categories you block will be denied.
In fact, because of the unique customization options we offer our customers, the Social Security Administration has clarified that True Link Cards provided by a trustee to an SNT beneficiary are not countable as income or a resource.
Simplify your family's financial life and support your loved one's ability to be more independent. With True Link, you provide your loved one with a reloadable card you fund from your desk. Add money onto the card by transferring funds from a linked checking account or other source. Schedule recurring transfers for preauthorized expenses or make a one-time transfer.
You can save time and reduce hassles while your loved one can enjoy quick and reliable access to funds, and the sense of independence that comes from being able to make purchases for themselves.
No more stress around making purchases for your loved one, buying gift cards, or handing out cash. True Link Cards are reloadable and easily funded online or over the phone. You can rest easy knowing your loved one enjoys greater independence and quick access to funds.
