Card Upgrade Information

Please reference this page for card activation dates and other important information regarding all your cards.

What you need to know

  • All credit and debit cards are now provided through MasterCard®
  • All credit and debit cards include EMV chip technology (please note that the non-debit, ATM-only cards do not have a chip).
  • Phone activation instructions are included with the card.
  • Upon activation, you will be prompted to create a Personal Identification Number (PIN) for each debit and credit card. This is required at some EMV retail locations as well as for cash advances. 
  • You can use your new card at both magnetic stripe terminals and chip-enabled terminals.
  • Please be aware all cards have a new card number and expiration date. If you utilize your card for recurring monthly bill payments, please remember to update any merchants with your new card and card number.
  • If you use Apple, Android or Samsung Pay, your new card information will need to be updated. These services will not be available until October 2017 (exact date TBD).

You will receive your new card by mail before the activation date. Please be sure to keep this in a secure place until the date listed below.

Credit Card Statements

Electronic Statements
If you prefer to receive your credit card statement electronically, you can easily choose this option in e-Banking. If you currently receive electronic credit card statements, you will be required to choose this option again in e-Banking on or after September 25. Please note, due to the timing of the upgrade, if you elect to receive electronic statements, you will still receive a paper statement for the first cycle.  

Credit Card & Rewards Points

Credit Card Activation Date - September 18, 2017 - Your old card will be deactivated September 18, 2017. You can activate your new card and begin using it on or after September 18, 2017. 

If you are a Rewards Credit Cardholder, your Rewards Points will transfer over with this upgrade.

Security Enhancements

EMV Chip Security
EMV chip cards and PIN usage are more secure than signature-only transactions. You may notice you are required to use your PIN more frequently at retail locations, as retailers continue to adopt EMV technology.

You may receive text message and phone calls related to help authenticate transactions. Texts and phone calls are a fast and convenient way to provide real-time protection against fraud. 

Card Management App

Coming soon, you can control your cards right from your mobile device with our card management app. Control card spending limits, turn cards on and off, and take advantage of other optional security features! Look for more information about our new app soon.
