If I activate my card and then order a card for my spouse or dependent, do they need to activate their new card?
No. If your card is already active, your spouse or dependent does not need to activate their new card. This means your spouse or dependent should be able to use their card as soon as they receive it. Note: If the card is already active, it will not have an activation label on it. If someone tries to activate an active card, they’ll hear this message: “Our records indicate this account has already been activated. Please contact the customer service phone number on the back of your card if you need further assistance.”
