I'm on SSI, and the law says I can't have more than $2,000 in my bank account at any time. I can however hold on to cash. Of course that is very inconvenient if I want to buy something online that costs more than I can have in my bank account. I also don't want to use credit cards because I've heard horror stories about interest and stuff like that, plus I'm terrible at budgeting. So my question is can prepaid debit cards be traced or can I put money on one little by little to get past that technicality?
