While the physical card is deactivated you can continue to make payments from your Hero Wallet Account. After you have deactivated your Hero Wallet Card, you will not be able to use your Hero Wallet Card until you reactivate it.
If you believe your Hero Wallet Card has been lost, damaged or compromised (not just temporarily lost) then you must immediately report your Hero Wallet Card lost or stolen within the Hero Wallet App and request a new Hero Wallet Card.
Where you think a transaction is an Unauthorised Transaction or is otherwise incorrect, please get in touch with us immediately via the Hero Wallet App and provide as much information as you can about the relevant transaction so we can investigate further.
There are specific circumstances and time frames where we can claim a refund in connection with a disputed transaction. This means that our ability to investigate a disputed transaction is limited to the time frames imposed by payment service providers and schemes that we deal with so it is important to let us know as soon as possible after you become aware of a disputed transaction
Where you make a mistake when making a payment, we will try to reverse the transaction and retrieve your funds. However, if we can’t reverse the transaction, we are not responsible, and you will be liable for the mistaken payment.
If you have a problem with a purchase made with your Hero Wallet Card or a disputed transaction, the first step is to get in touch with the merchant you made the purchase from.
If you cannot resolve the matter with the merchant, contact us about the disputed transaction via the Hero Wallet App.
You will not be responsible for Unauthorised Transactions:
- that occur before your Hero Wallet Card is issued to you;
- that occur after you have disabled or cancelled your Hero Wallet Card and while it remains disabled; or
- where you didn’t contribute to the Unauthorised Transaction.
We may consider that you have contributed to an Unauthorised Transaction where:
- you have not kept your Hero Wallet Card, PIN or Passcode reasonably secure; or
- there was an unreasonable delay in freezing or cancelling your Hero Wallet Card where you believed it was lost, stolen or otherwise compromised.
You can view your transaction history in the Hero Wallet App at any time. We take security very seriously but please regularly check it to make sure there is nothing unusual such as:
- transactions you don’t recognise;
- transactions you didn’t authorise;
- transactions where you never received the relevant goods or services;
- transactions where the purchase price differs to the purchase amount; or
- you think a transaction may have been duplicated.
We can cancel the Hero Wallet Card where we have concerns about security and to protect your Available Balance where we suspect the Hero Wallet Card has been compromised.
If we become aware that you haven’t done what you’ve agreed to do as set out in these Terms we may cancel your Hero Wallet Account. If this happens, we will let you know as soon as possible and refund your Available Balance to your nominated account.
The expiry date is shown on your Hero Wallet Card. We will contact you prior to the expiry to let you know next steps for continuing to use your Hero Wallet products after the expiry date.
You can close your Hero Wallet Account by contacting us via the Hero Wallet App or directly using email Herowallethelp@employmenthero.com.

- by email to the email address recorded for you in the Hero Wallet App;

We are responsible for things that occur that are our fault. This includes things like your Available Balance being incorrectly debited due to our error or our fraud.
We are not responsible for things outside of our control like;
- where a merchant does not accept your Hero Wallet Card;
- delays or interruptions not caused by us;
- transactions not being able to be processed, despite us taking reasonable precautions;
- a dispute between you and the supplier of goods or services purchased with the Hero Wallet Card; or
- compliance with our regulatory obligations.

If the laws in Australia impose any guarantees, warranties or conditions on the Hero Wallet Card or Hero Wallet Account, then our liability for a breach of such guarantee, warranty or conditions will be limited to:
- supplying the services again; or
- the payment of the cost of having the services supplied again.
