Securely and quickly make purchases from your checking account with a Visa debit card.
Every checking account comes with a free Visa debit card.
The Visa debit card works like an electronic check, directly paying for transactions from your checking account. Your debit card is a simple, secure way to pay virtually anywhere. Whether you’re getting groceries down the street, making an online purchase, or getting cash from one of our many ATMs, you can use your Visa debit card with confidence.
You’ll enjoy peace of mind with our 24/7 account monitoring. Our fraud professionals and systems closely monitor accounts for suspicious activity. Our sophisticated alert system can immediately let you know of any account activity. You can rest easier knowing that your bank is watching out for you and ready to help.
Our cards come with EMV microchip and contactless technologies. The enhanced features of the EMV Microchip protect your bank account by issuing a unique code for each transaction, adding a new safeguard against fraud. Contactless technology provides card holders an additional secure payment option when making in-store purchases – simply hold your card or device (mobile wallet) within a few inches of the terminal, near the contactless symbol to engage the “Tap” feature.

Visa Account Updater
Our debit cards and Visa gold cards are enrolled in the Visa Account Updater service. If you have automatic payments set up on your card, your updated account details are securely sent to merchants when the information changes (card number or expiration date). Not all businesses participate in this service, so it’s still a good idea to give your provider a call to let them know when your expiration date or card number changes. If you want to opt-out of the service, just give us a call!
Credit or Debit?
The answer is either. The charge will always be deducted directly from your checking account, but at the checkout you can select credit or debit.
Choosing credit skips entering your PIN. Just pay with your card and sign. Selecting credit will also lead to a more detailed description of the transaction on your statement.
Choosing debit will require you to enter your PIN as authorization and gives you the option to get extra cash back.
