How to use your Benefit Bank card

Once your card is activated, you can use it like a credit/debit card at any location where the primary business category is dental care, eyewear, fitness memberships and/or hearing aids.

For example, our Orange, Green and Blue plans all include a $150 eyewear allowance. If you buy a pair of $200 eyeglasses, your eyewear allowance covers the first $150. You can use your Benefit Bank card to pay the remaining $50. And you will have money remaining on the card that you can use for something else. 

You can also use the card to pay bills already received from dental care, eyewear, fitness memberships or hearing aid providers. Just call the service provider and give them your Benefit Bank card number, or write your Benefit Bank card number on the billing statement.
