Frequently Asked Questions

NOTE: In addition to these Frequently Asked Questions, please also refer to U.S. Bank’s  ReliaCard Frequently Asked Questions (see “Tools, Links, and Contacts” section, below).

How do I qualify for the card?

No credit approval or bank account is required. The ReliaCard is the default method of payment.

If the cardholder receives payments from different state agencies or programs (e.g., child support payments, unemployment compensation, and provider payments, etc.) will that cardholder have one card or multiple cards?

Individuals who receive payments from different programs will receive separate ReliaCards for each program. The cards are of similar design, but are in different colors for easy identification.

Why didn’t my card have money on it when it arrived?

When you establish a PIN for your new ReliaCard it may not have money on it yet. Clients are only paid after their reimbursement claim form is approved and entered into the state accounting system. Clients should contact the Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Court with questions about when a payment is generated from their approved claims (see “Tools, Links, and Contacts” section, below).

Are there any fees associated with this card?

See “Fees” section, above.
