become.1 Benefits

We have excellent news for you!

With become.1, your employer has introduced a whole range of different employee benefits for you! This gives you two exciting options in the future:

  1. You will receive a monthly credit on your personal prepaid card with become.1 Card!
  2. You will also receive a virtual budget from your employer with which you can have certain private costs subsidised!

We explain exactly how this works on this page.

1. become.1 Card

Your regional non-cash benefit!!

The non-cash benefit is a voluntary benefit from your employer, which we make available to you as a card. Up to a maximum limit of € 50 per month, neither you nor your employer will be liable for taxes and social security contributions on the non-cash benefit. You can easily view your current become.1 Card account balance via our application on your mobile phone.

Alternatively, you can also log in to our desktop version. The card must be regionally restricted for tax purposes – you can find out how to do this in the next section.

Select your region!

Using the become.1 application, you can easily select your preferred region in which the map can be used. Your place of residence is often selected, but this can also be your place of work.

Basically, you select a central 2-digit postcode district, e.g. “69” for Heidelberg (69115). From this moment on, you can pay with the card at all participating providers with MasterCard acceptance within the region “69” and all directly adjacent 2-digit postcode districts, in this case “63”, “64”, “68”, “74” and “76”.

Please note that the selection of the postcode area cannot be changed after selection.

How to order your physical card!


Note: Depending on the employer’s settings, there is a virtual card and a physical card option. Some employers only want a digital solution, in which case the physical card option is not available.

If your employer grants the option of physical cards, you can have a card sent to the address of your choice. Once ordered, it usually takes 5 working days for the card to be sent.

2. become.1 Flex

Your virtual budget!

With become.1 Flex, your employer provides you with a virtual budget via become.1, which you can use up over the course of the month by submitting receipts. There are no social security contributions or taxes for you.

With become.1 Flex, all you have to do is upload receipts for the benefit of your choice via the same application as become.1 Card. Alternatively, you can also log in to our desktop version and upload receipts there.

Submit and receive money!

You can easily submit vouchers for the flex modules activated by your employer via the become.1 application.

Your receipts will be checked by become.1 after uploading. If you have submitted eligible receipts, you will receive your allowance with your salary payment in the following month after approval.
