Eppicard is an electronic payment system whereby the state deposits welfare money to your bank account. Once the money is loaded to your debit card you can use it to shop and pay your monthly bills. Many people prefer this card to checks because it is a fast mode of payment. Moreover, it is quite secure unlike checks which can get lost when you are mailing. The government will deposit the money to your account as soon as it is given out and you can withdraw from a nearby ATM. If there is no ATM nearby you can also get cash from a store that accepts Eppicard. The money you will be given will be charged to your debit card.
