Not all prepaid card issuers issue a monthly transaction record, but all must make your transaction history available. By law, the issuer must let you access your account balance by phone, review at least 12 months of online account transaction history, and request at least two years’ worth of written transaction history for free. You might also be able to sign up to receive statements by mail, email or text, but there may be a fee for one or more of these delivery options.
To catch any errors or suspicious activity, log in to your account regularly. Compare the activity onscreen to your transaction receipts, which you should keep until you are sure there are no errors and you will not need them to make a return. Notify the card issuer immediately if you notice anything wrong.
