If a person is a U.S. Virgin Islands Government retiree over the age of 65, that person will receive a $40 quarterly allowance to spend on thousands of covered products, including healthy food and a wide range of over-the-counter products at participating retailers.

The retiree will receive a prepaid card in the mail, and credit will be automatically loaded onto it the first day of January, April, July and October. Unused credits will roll over to the next quarter, and all credits will expire on Dec. 31, 2023.

Get started by activating the prepaid card online at www.activates3.com or by calling 1-833-832-7306,
