Eppicard app for android

If you currently receive child support payments or unemployment benefit payments through an eppicard debt card, you are probably familiar with checking your account information through eppicard.com balance check website. You are also allowed to check your acocunt information, including balances, transaction summary history and get general questions answered via the telephone number for customer service that is displayed on the back of the card. But in today’s world where every financial transaction imaginable can be transacted on mobile devices, including phones, tablets and phablets, one has to wonder why it has taken Eppicard so long to develop an app for the millions of customer who are using their cards. Well, your wait is over. There is an iphone eppicard app which we reviewed recently and now an Android version.

Eppicard app for Android

There is an app specifically developed for android users that allows you to perform some of the basic functions that you can do on the website or over the phone. It provides a free, fast, convenient and secure way to monitor your EPPICard available balance and Card activity. Some of the services that can be performed using the eppicard app for android include the following:

  • Check your available EPPICard balance anytime, anywhere
  • Review up to four months of transaction history
  • Confirm your last deposit

Here are some images of what the application looks like on an android phone or device:

How to login to the Eppicard Andriod app

If you already have your EPPICard user ID and password, you’re ready to use the mobile app. New card members must first enroll your Card account at www.EPPICard.com to get your user ID and password for mobile and online access. Click here to download eppicard app for android.

When we reviewed the app, we were very satisfied with the ease of use and the many functions it allows you to perform, including balance check, transaction summary history and be able to confirm that your money for unemployment benefits or child support payments has been deposited into the account on the scheduled date as promised. However, there was one big letdown regarding this application: The official EPPICard app currently works with these eligible programs:

  • North Carolina
  • Georgia
  • Virginia

That’s really a disappointment for the millions of people who use this debit card. To only have information for just three states kind of negates the reason for having an app in the first place when there are people in 47 other states that use the card and would benefit greatly from using this application.

We hope our review was helpful. We would like to hear from our readers about their experience using the phone app and any problems you may have experienced. Post your comments in the comment section below.

Eppicard app for iphone

If you are currently on Eppicard from a state program, either for unemployment benefits payments or child support payments, the www.eppicard.com website is one way to get information about your card, including help with account balance, transaction history, or whether your unemployment benefits or child support money has been deposited in the account. You can also call the eppicard customer service number at the back of your card to get the same information. There is however another convinient way to access your account information. And that is through the iphone application that is developed by the company the runs the program on behalf of the states – Xerox Corporation. Below are pictures of what the app looks like:

Eppicard app for iphone

It allows you to conveniently and securely monitor your EPPICard available balance and Card activity directly from your Apple iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. Some of the functions you can perform on the application include the following:

•Check your available EPPICard balance anytime, anywhere
•Review up to four months of transaction history
•Confirm your last deposit

How To Login to the App

If you already have your EPPICard user ID and password, you’re ready to use the mobile app. New card members must first enroll your Card account at www.EPPICard.com to get your user ID and password for mobile and online access. To download the app on itunes, click here. 

Even though the application is very convenient to use and provides the basic features one would expect from any application that is supporting a prepaid debit card, there is a one BIG drawback to the eppicard app for iphone. It is that the application currently only provides information for customers that reside in only 3 states:

  • Georgia
  • Virginia
  • North Carolina

For us, this is a huge let down. We are baffled by why Xerox will release an application for a program that impacts all 50 states and only provide access to customers in 3 states. We hope there are plans in place to add more states soon. Otherwise, what’s the point in claiming you have an app if it does not allow all your customers to have access to it.

Eppicard Phishing Notification Alerts

Eppicards phishing is on the rise and card holders have become a prime target of fraud and scams from phishing activity over the last few years and the level of attacks are growing in number, causing many states to issue eppicard phishing notification alerts to their child support and unemployment benefits cardholders warning them of illegal activities from people trying to steal their account information and deplete the funds from their eppicards.

How does Eppicard Phishing Work?

Here is how the phishing activity works. Thieves who have the intention of stealing the money from your account will send you an email that appears to come from your State’s eppicard program. The email will claim your account is locked, blocked or suspended and in order for it to be unlocked, unblocked or removed from suspension, you need to click on an attached link in the email to verify your personal information. The link will take you to a website that looks like the official eppicard website but it is not. They are taking you to a fake website. Once you enter your personal information on that fake website to unlock your account, they will copy all your information and use it to log into your real eppicard account and then take control of it. They will then go ahead and spend all the money in your account. Before you know it, all your child support or unemployment benefits money is gone. The main eppicard login page now has this notice for most state websites:

"eppicard phishing alert"

Here is what to do about it

When you receive any email asking you to go to a website and verify your eppicard information, chances are it is fake. Eppicard will not send you an email asking for your personal information. If you are not sure where the email is coming from, call your eppicard customer service phone number and speak to a live person about the email and find out if it came from them. Whatever you do, do not provide your personal eppicard information unless you have spoken to a customer service representative and have been told the email came from them.

Here is a great video above about what you need to know about phishing emails and you should watch the entire video to make sure you see how serious this is and protect yourself from them before you become a victim of these fraudsters and scammers. If you become a victim, report the issue to the Federal Trade Commission for action.
