EMV Chip technology is here, to help protect you from debit and credit card fraud.
Your card will now feature an embedded chip which improves security when you make a purchase at a chip-activated terminal.
EMV Chip debit and credit card or ‘Smart Card’.
EMV cards add improved security and fraud protection with an embedded computer chip. This technology is already securing payment cards in more than 80 countries and is now being adopted as the card standard in the U.S.
Merchants are installing new payment terminals that support the new cards. To make purchases, you simply insert your card, follow the screen prompts, sign and remove your card. You still may be required to enter your card’s PIN or sign for transactions, dependent on the individual merchant’s requirements.Your card will also work on existing payment terminals that don’t use the new technology.
When you receive your new EMV Chip card, please activate it immediately and destroy your old card as your old card will be deactivated shortly after your new card arrives. Your new card may have the same account number, but the expiration date and CVV (Card Verification Value) security code will be different. Please update all recurring card payments with the new expiration date, CVV code, and account number (if different).
If you have questions regarding your new chip card or how to use it, please contact us at 1-800-233-6510 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
