Youth Service payment card

If you’re on Money Management your provider will give you a payment card.

Some of your weekly benefit payment will be loaded onto your payment card for you to use for things like food, groceries, basic clothing and household items, healthcare items, public transport passes, and things you need for your education or training.

Your payment card is like an debit card, but it can only be used at certain places – such as supermarkets. Items like tobacco or alcohol cannot be purchased with the payment card.

To use your card, you’ll first need to check My Account to see how much money is available on your card.  You can then take your card with you to one of the stores listed below. Here you will need to:

  • swipe the card
  • select CHQ
  • enter the card PIN
  • sign the EFTPOS receipt.
