VISA Credit Card EMV Chip-Enabled Cards As you may have heard by now, all credit card issuers are required to begin issuing EMV (Europay, MasterCard, VISA) chip-enabled cards. Beginning September 24th, 2015 all new VISA Credit Cards include the EMV chip. This includes all naturally reissued cards, lost/stolen cards, and cards reissued for any other reason. The EMV chip technology allows for added layers of security at the point of sale. EMV credit cards are the new industry standard and are more widely accepted when traveling internationally. The EMV chip technology allows cardholders to pay 3 different ways.
  • Swipe your card: If a merchant is not EMV ready, swipe the card as usual with the magnetic strip.
  • Insert into the chip reader: Insert the chip portion with the chip facing up. Leave the card in the terminal while completing the transaction. Follow the on-screen terminal prompts. When the transaction is complete you will be prompted to remove your card. Don’t leave it behind!
  • Or, Use Pay Wave technology: If a merchant accepts VISA® Pay Wave, you simply wave your card in front of the contactless device and transaction information is submitted.
If you have questions or would like to request an EMV chip-enabled card, please feel free to call us at 1.800.526.6933 or 860.513.5000.

Our East Windsor Branch & ATM Are No Longer In Service, Effective August 29, 2015 In an effort to continue enhancing our member experience, we frequently re-evaluate our products and services, hours of operation, security and technology, staff, and branch locations. During recent lease negotiations involving the East Windsor branch, located at 137 Prospect Hill Road, we could not come to terms with the property owner to solidify continued occupation of this location. As a result, the difficult decision to close this branch and ATM, effective at close of business August 29, 2015, was made. In the future, we hope to reintroduce a branch somewhere around this area and have already begun searching for new locations. We have a wide range of electronic services to help bank without a branch. These services give you access to your accounts anywhere, anytime. They include: For those members that frequented the East Windsor branch and require in-person services, we encourage you to visit these nearby locations: In addition, our Contact Center is available to answer questions you may have. For your convenience, the hours are:
  • Monday – Friday: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Saturday: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Thank you for your loyalty to the credit union. We look forward to continue serving you. Sincerely, Your Nutmeg State Financial Credit Union Team
