The National Parking Association (NPA) today announced it has signed an affinity benefit agreement with Pronto Money Services. NPA members can now offer employees, without checking accounts, a payroll debit card.
Wages can be directly deposited to the card and available to the employee. This helps those employees without checking accounts get immediate access to funds and avoid high check cashing fees.
Pronto offers a prepaid MasterCard, business solutions, bill payments, check cashing, currency exchange, money orders and money transfers card. The program is backed by an FDIC insured bank and provides a secure and accessible money card for parking industry employees. The card also reduces the administrative process for issuing checks.
"We are pleased to add Pronto Money Services to our family of Affinity Partners as a cost-effective program that benefits both employers and employees in the administration and receipt of wages," said NPA President Christine Banning, CAE. "The NPA affinity program benefits our members by offering them services such as credit card processing, insurance and now an employee payroll card at preferred pricing discounts. Participation in these programs can result in achieving a true return on investment for our members."
"The opportunities Pronto Money Services can provide for employees are tremendous, and we’re very excited to bring these options to our partner NPA, partner companies and to individual consumers," said J. Michael "Mickey" Brown, President and CEO of Pronto Money Services. Brown added, "Our Pronto business model is designed not only for commercial success but to truly help people achieve financial independence."
NPA members can sign up for the Pronto Money Services program by enrolling with Pronto to establish an account and offer the payroll debit card as an employee benefit. More information is available at http://www.npapark.org/membership_affinityprograms.php.
