Federal is now offering debit cards with chip technology! Use your debit card worry-free by activating your card as soon as you get it. Then, remember to update any online payments connected to your current card.
EMV (Europay/MasterCard/Visa) cards has a microchip embedded in the card which adds a new layer of protection against fraud for purchases made at the point of sale. Information programmed into the chip is personalized for your account and each transaction generates a unique code, adding an extra safeguard against unauthorized use and counterfeiting.
Watch for your EMV debit card replacement over the next few months
(excluding Health Savings Account cards).
