February 28, 2015 - Attention Debit & ATM Cardholders - We Are Upgrading Your card to MasterCard Debit Chip Card

 

New 24/7 Cardholder Support - Debit chip cardholders will have customer support after Credit Union business hours. Cardholders will call the number on the back of their new chip card to:         

  • Notify us when traveling
  • Remove bad PINs
  • Block lost or stolen cards
  • Request a new card
  • Dispute transactions          

 

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.

Note: MasterCard debit chip cards cannot be used for car rentals. Call 716.847.6960 for information on obtaining a credit card.
