Visa Debit Card
Need a new PIN number or forget your current one? You can now access your PIN 24/7!
A new program called Card Self Service is where members can use the telephone to call a toll-free number into the IVR (Interactive Voice Response) service to activate their new, reissued, or replacement debit card. Members will also have the added convenience of being able to use the IVR to select or change their PIN (either forgotten or known PIN). The IVR is available around the clock. The number for this service is: 1-800-992-3808.
To order a new or replacement debit card, you will still need to contact the Credit Union at (301) 306-0610 from Monday – Friday, 8:30am to 4:00pm.
IBEW 26 FCU’s Visa Debit Card is a safe, simple, and convenient alternative to carrying a checkbook or cash. Present the Visa Check Card and your purchase will be deducted directly from your Checking Account. There’s no interest to pay and you will enjoy immediate approval at the register. For cash-on-the-run, use your Visa Check Card at any ATM bearing the STAR or Allpoint logos.
Debit or Credit?
Debit – If you choose debit at the register, you must use a personal identification number (PIN).
Credit – If you choose credit at the register, the transaction is processed through the Visa network. When you choose credit and sign for the purchase, it actually helps your credit union and other members because Visa transactions are more efficient and less costly than ATM transactions.
If your Debit card is lost or stolen, contact:
After Hours lost or stolen (24/7) – 833-305-5912
After Hours fraud (24/7) – 833-305-5913
