Managing Personal Finances

Using a Navy Federal Visa®Buxx Card is a first step, and a big responsibility, for your student. Give them a solid financial foundation by teaching them how to set a budget, build credit, control debt and make saving a priority.



The Visa Buxx Card is initially loaded during the "Add New Student" process by using a Navy Federal Debit Card or Navy Federal Visa or Mastercard credit card. The initial load amount onto a card can be between $20 and $500. This will be processed as a normal transaction (not a cash advance). Additionally, you will have the option to set up automatic funding to help take the stress out of giving your students cash.
