This Legislative Brief provides effective dates for key ACA reforms that affect employers and individuals.
Effective April 1, 2013, a new regulation goes into effect as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall-Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that requires consumers to be provided with the ability to pay using a PIN (Personal Identification Number) at the point of sale, in addition to the current signature process.
Keep in mind, the use of a PIN is not required to access your funds via the Benny Prepaid Benefits Card. You can continue to use your Benny Prepaid Benefits Card as you always have by simply swiping your card and providing a signature.
TO REQUEST A PIN For Your Swerdlin & Company Benny Prepaid Benefits Card:
- To create a PIN, please call 1-866-898-9795
- The automated system will walk you through the prompt to create your own self-selected PIN for your Benny Prepaid Benefits Card.
- Remember to keep your PIN private.
We recommend creating a unique PIN that cannot be easily guessed by others.
Am I required to use a PIN to access funds in my account?
No. You can continue to use your Benny Prepaid Benefits Card as you always have, simply swipe the card and provide a signature.
No. The PIN is the same for all cards issued to your family. If you choose this option, make sure other family members are aware of the PIN. Alternatively, they can continue to pay using the signature process.
If I don’t know my PIN or have not yet selected one, can I still use my card?
Yes. Simply let the merchant know that you wish to pay using the signature process and they will direct you accordingly.
How do I use my PIN when using my Benny Prepaid Benefits Card? Once you swipe your card at the point of purchase, choose “Credit” or “Debit” on the keypad. Choosing “Credit” will require only your signature. Choosing “Debit” will require you to enter your PIN.
Will I be able to receive cash-back or access my accounts via ATM with this new PIN option?
No. PINs will only allow you to pay for eligible goods and services as they do today. Cash-back and ATM transactions will not be allowed.

Most don't realize that the Western World shares a worldview based on the science from about three centuries ago, Newtonian science. This worldview and the science behind it have become both outdated and incomplete. The good news is that more recent science provides us with an alternative worldview. If enough of us accept the new science worldview and change our beliefs and thinking based on the new view, we can create a peaceful and thriving world; no violence, no wars, no terrorism, no fear, and respect and compassion for all. A New Science Worldview provides specific steps to help us transform our thinking and beliefs in accordance with the new worldview.
