  • Notify Credit Union when traveling
  • Block lost or stolen cards
  • Dispute transactions
  • Unblock card from incorrect PIN attempts  

Select Your Own PIN - When cardholders receive their MasterCard debit chip card, they will activate the new card by calling the number on the card carrier and select their own PIN (personal identification number) when prompted.

ATTENTION Cardholders with Recurring/Automatic Payments - When you receive your new chip card, contact the payee and provide them with your new MasterCard debit chip card information. This is not to be confused with debits from your checking account that was set-up using your checking account number that begins with 1006.

Issuance of Chip Cards to Existing Cardholders - Right now BMFCU does not have a specific date when cards will be mailed out to existing cardholders. You will be notified as soon as a date is established. Please verify the Credit Union has your current mailing address and phone number on file.
