Human Subject Prepaid Card Program

Cash Handling and Banking Services is excited to introduce the new and improved Human Subject Prepaid Card (HSPC) program to compensate human subjects. 

The HSPC program provides greater utility and flexibility to meet your unique business requirements. In addition, the program strengthens internal controls to meet UC Policy BUS-49 while also improving operational efficiency

The distribution options for the program are:

Instant Issue Plastic

Departments will issue a Visa debit card directly to Human Subjects after they perform an easy to use activation and load process.

Personalized (bulk) Plastic

Visa debit cards will be mailed directly to the human subjects. This program is designed to pay a large number of human subjects.

Virtual Payment

Human Subjects will be provided virtual card payment information via email notification to allow for online purchases or the option to transfer funds to their personal bank accounts.
