Do you have a GMFCU VISA CREDIT Card?
Starting January 2016, we will be replacing magnetic stripe cards with chip cards. You will receive your new card when your card is due to expire. Please see below for some helpful hints:
Q. What is a chip card, and how does it work?
A. Chip cards, also called EMV (Europay, Mastercard and Visa) or smart cards, utilize a computer chip embedded in the card to generate a one-time use security code. This is the small, metallic chip you’ll see on the left side of your debit or credit cards. When you use your card to make purchases at a business, the chip communicates with the terminal, sending this one-time code exclusive to that purchase. The code cannot be used again, making it nearly impossible for your cardholder data to be stolen and counterfeited.
Q. Why are we switching to chip cards?
Safety and a Higher Level of Security – Because of the one-time code generated with in-store purchases, if the data is ever stolen, it becomes useless to criminals, making it nearly impossible to develop a counterfeit card.
Convenience and Global Acceptance – Adopting chip cards makes it easier for you to travel internationally. Much of the world has already converted to this technology.
Q. How do I know if my credit card is a chip card?
A. Chip cards have a small, rectangular chip embedded on the front left side of the card. Your card will still have a magnetic stripe on the back so you can swipe it at merchants who are not yet equipped with chip-enabled terminals.
Q. How will chip card transactions be different?
A. Right now, with a magnetic stripe card, you swipe your card at a terminal. With a chip card, you’ll do what is called “dipping.” This means you’ll insert your card chip-up into the terminal, follow the prompts and wait for it to process. Also, remember to take your card with you when your transaction is complete.
