NEW CHIP CARD. ADDED SECURITY

All newly issued Visa Check Cards will arrive with the chip embedded technology. This includes all new accounts and the reissue of expired cards. Your new Chip Card has an embedded chip that allows payment information to be securely transmitted at a chip-enabled terminal. This technology provides an enhanced level of security and greater worldwide acceptance as it is already standard practice in more than 130 countries worldwide and more U.S. merchants are accepting the Chip Card every day.


WHAT MAKES CHIP TECHNOLOGY MORE SECURE?

The chip technology provides stronger protection by making it difficult for your card to be copied or counterfeited at chip-enabled terminals as a unique code is created for each transaction.


WHERE CAN I USE MY CARD?

In addition to using your card at chip-enabled terminals, your card has a magnetic stripe allowing you to use it at retailers who do not yet have chip-enabled terminals.


HOW DO I USE MY CHIP CARD AT A RETAILER THAT IS CHIP-ENABLED?

  • Insert and leave the chip end of your card into the terminal with the chip facing up.
  • Keep your card in the terminal and follow the prompts on the screen
  • Remove your card when prompted and take your receipt
