Do I have to have a card?
Posted on 8 July 2013
The Devon Card will be the primary option offered by Devon County Council to people managing their direct payments. However, if someone would rather not have a card they can still use a bank account for their direct payments.
Existing direct payments users will be offered the card at point of review. There is no current plan to make the card mandatory, although this is possible in future if initial trials prove successful. This is consistent with the approach taken by other local authorities.
