Once You Receive Your New Card

  • For your security we do not mail your provided PIN number associated with your CFCU Visa Debit Card. You will receive a separate mailer within 3 to 5 days prior or after receiving your new card.
  • You are able to change your PIN by phone or by visiting any CFCU ATM. 
  • Joint members will receive a unique debit card but will need to use the primary member's information to activate the card

Tips For Using Your Card

  • Your CFCU Visa Debit Card is a new chip card. To use your chip card, enter the chip into the bottom of the terminal. Follow the prompts and remove your card when instructed.
  • Always select Credit as your transaction type. Credit transactions help to prevent possible fraudulent activity by avoiding the use of your PIN. 
  • Your Visa Debit Card can be used as an ATM card at over 30,000 surcharge-free ATMs including any CFCU ATM. 
  • Be aware of your "Available Account Balance." This is the balance available for use in your account, not your actual balance. 
  • Sign up for Visa Purchase Alerts and get notified of alerts such as:
    • Reachinga  purchase threshold
    • International purchases
    • Online or over the phone purchases
