You may receive a cash advance by presenting your credit card at any People First branch or at any other financial institution that is a Visa® member. Cash advance funds can also be accessed through ATMs that display the Visa® logo. To obtain a cash advance at an ATM, you will need to use your credit card and Personal Identification Number (PIN).
