Your social security number is required to activate your Green Dot credit card. If you never used a social security number then call 1-866-795-7605 to activate your Card. In the prompt you will hear what number to click to activate your new card. You will need to use the 3 digit code on the card to activate it.
The issue in GetHuman-mhilliar's own words
Activate without providing all my personal information. I would understand if I were using for payroll issues, but not everyday purchases with the little amount that is on the card! I will not be reloading but do not want to lose the funds either!!!! ... There are prepaid cards that DO NOT ask for your personal information and we DO NOT want to give such personal information for a prepaid card - they said the Titanic would not sink & it’s now at the bottom of the ocean!! Why do you need it? To sell?? How can we use the little money we put on the card WITHOUT giving you such personal information???? Definitely do not want to reload & don’t want to lose the funds added !!! **Hate it even more & VERY UPSET there are several numbers out there to contact you BUT NO HUMAN CONTACT!! And we are supposed to give you personal information???? Really???!
This is for a one time use only, not for payroll purposes so why all my personal information????
Activate card without my personal information so the funds can be depleted with no further activity. The card will be shredded after my funds are depleted.
I tried four different numbers to speak with a human being and none of the numbers allowed me to speak with anyone - very frustrating.
I have an issue with Green Dot too
