Student Spouse/Partner
An MIT student can share his or her TechCASH account with a spouse or partner as long as that person holds a valid MIT ID card. A shared account allows the spouse or partner to draw on the student’s TechCASH account for use at MIT laundries, so that the two need to maintain only one account. This option is also available for the spouses or partners of affiliates with Express accounts and employees with Payroll Deduction plans. To open a shared account, please fill out the following form.

MIT employees can open payroll deduction plans for TechCASH. A payroll deduction allows employees to use their MIT ID card to make purchases using TechCASH, the cost of which are then deducted from their next paychecks. To open a payroll deduction plan, please fill out the following form.

Affiliates (Including MIT spouses and employees)
MIT affiliates can open a TechCASH Express account on their MIT ID cards. Express accounts are debit accounts similar to student TechCASH plans, but can only be funded by credit card deposit. This option is also available for MIT spouses or partners who choose not to open shared accounts, and MIT employees who choose not to open payroll deduction plans. To open an Express account, please fill out the following form.
