    Surcharges are fees charged by the ATM owner. If the ATM will charge a surcharge for your withdrawal, you will be notified on the ATM screen and asked to approve the surcharge. You may approve or you may cancel the transaction if you do not elect to pay the fee. Look for surcharge free ATMs to avoid this extra fee. Surcharge free ATM locations are offered on line at moneynetwork.com. Select "Employees", then "ATM Location" and enter zip code.

  19. Is the PayCard safe and how is it protected?
    You select a personal four digit PIN for your PayCard. No one can get any money from the card without this secret PIN number. The money is held in trust for the benefit of the cardholder so it is protected from any claim from the employer or any legal action against the cardholder.

  20. What happens if I lose my PayCard?
    No problem, because your PayCard is PIN protected no one will be able to get money from your account.
