EMV Chip Debit Card Upgrade

emvAll Visa debit cards are being reissued with EMV micro-chip technology upon the
current card’s expiration date. Upon receipt of your new card, please destroy
your previous debit card and activate your new card immediately. Once you
begin using your new debit card, your previous card will be deactivated.
The micro-chip enables more secure processing by producing unique data
specific to your card and the transaction being processed. This safety feature
makes your new card extremely difficult to counterfeit.
