Our upgrade to debit chip cards is almost complete. Over the next week there could be intermittent issues with debit card approvals at limited merchants. This is an issue we are monitoring closely and believe it will be limited and temporary. If for some reason your debit card is declined, chose to run the card as "signature" or credit. In this case you will not need your PIN and the purchase will go through. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. If you have any questions about your debit card, please contact us during regular business hours at 402.472.2087 or after hours at 1.888.526.0404.

The credit union will be sending out new debit chip cards to members before the end of January. The new chip-enable card will still have a magstripe on the back of the card as well as the visible chip on the front. For merchants who do not have a chip-enabled machine you will continue to swipe your card to make a payment. On a chip-enabled machine, you will insert the card and the terminal will read a unique code that is assigned during the transaction. This unique code is difficult to counterfeit.
When you receive your new debit chip card in the mail it will have the same number as the card you are using today. Please follow the instructions on the card to activate the card. Once the card is activated you can begin using the new card and remember to destroy your old card. If you have questions about this upgraded service, please call us at 402.472.2087 or click here to visit our chip card page for more information.
