Debit Cards

Visa® Check Card

Kick the habit of writing a check with a Visa® check card. The check card gives you the convenience of using a credit card, but your purchases are deducted directly from your checking account. There is no annual fee and since your purchase comes directly from your checking account, there are no finance charges to pay. You must have a checking account to receive a debit card.

The check card can also be used to withdraw cash 24 hours a day at ATM machines worldwide.

To change your PIN call 1-800-757-9848. Remember to always protect yourself while shopping online. Verified by Visa

Once you establish your password, every time you pay online at participating retailers you will be asked to enter your secure password before being allowed to continue with the transaction.
