To get a BasicsCard you must first start Income Management.

We will offer you a BasicsCard at that time. You don’t need to accept the BasicsCard when you first start Income Management, you can ask for one at any time while on Income Management.

You will need to visit a service centre to get your BasicsCard. We don’t post these out to you.

BasicsCard can help you manage your income managed money. It means you have easy access to your money when you are shopping.
