Injured workers can get credit card payments

MasterCard and Banco Nacional are working with the Instituto Nacional de Seguros to provide those suffering from a work injury with a prepaid credit card to cover their expenses. Until now many individuals were reimbursed in cash, which caused delays, the firms said.

The insurance institute makes about 800 payments each day to workers covered by the riesgo de trabajo insurance or workman’s comp. The Instituto Nacional de Seguros also can make payments to individual bank accounts via the Internet but some injured workers are not Internet savvy.
