You should notify us immediately if your card has been lost or stolen to minimize risk. You should also contact us about any unauthorized debit card transaction because you may not be liable for the transaction. You can contact us at 1-800-239-5175.

When I receive my new card with Chip Technology, does it replace my old card?

Yes. Once you activate your new card, your old card will be de-activated.

Why does my new chip card look different from my old card?

While your card number is still the same, we have provided you with a new distinctive design that reflects the new technology your card provides. Additionally, we want your new card design and secure technology to reflect our brand promise—banking on a brighter future.

Why is my name and card number not embossed on my new cards?

Your name and card number are now featured on the back of the card. This allows the card design to really stand out and shine.
