NFCU Prepaid Visa Buxx for Teens

[ Edited ]

Hello all,

 

I have a question concerning the pre-paid visa card from Navy Federal.  I went online to register my 14 year old son for one, & when creating the parent profile it asked for a social.  I am hesitant to fill this out at this time as I have a few recent inquiries right now, & don't want to create anymore if I don't have to.

Does any of you NFCU members have one of these for your teen?  Is the social request for identification only, or will they do a hard pull on my credit report?

 

Thanks

Assuming you already have an account/realtionship with them, they shouldn't need another HP from you for just this. And based on your sig its seems you already have account with them.

Yes, I have an account.  Just inquiring about this card, since they don't have an actual teen checking.  I already have a teen account set up with him through Capital One 360; used to be ING Direct.  I just wanted him to get used to managing more than one account & having options.

I just wanted confirmation that it would not result in a HP.  Thanks for your input.
