Benefits for Active Employees
Credit Card - VISA Travel Card
The VISA Travel Card is available to state employees with permanent status in SHaRP and an annual income of over $15,000. If an employee moves to another state agency, the card will transfer. Some features of the card are:
- Issued to individual employees for travel-related expenses
- Restricted to employees with an annual minimum salary of $15,000
- No annual fees
- $2,500 card limit per billing cycle (Please contact A&R if exceptions are required.)
- No State liability for charges to cards
The Travel Card Program is administered by the Division of Purchases. Click here for more information.
Note that the use of a PSU Business Procurement Card (BPC) has alleviated some of the financial burden on employees who travel. Please check with your department administrative assistant about using a BPC to prepay as many travel expenses as possible.
