EMV Protection 

Your Classic Bank Visa® debit card has an embedded chip that generates a unique, single-use code to validate transactions made at chip-enabled registers — further protecting your card from unauthorized use. Your chip-enabled card is also known as a "smart card" or an "EMV card."

If a merchant is not enabled for chip payments, your chip-enabled Classic Bank Visa debit card can still be used by swiping the magnetic stripe.

Using your chip-enabled Classic Bank Visa debit card is easy:

  1. Insert the chip end of your Classic Bank Visa debit card into the terminal with the chip facing up
  2. Keep your card in the terminal and follow the prompts on the screen
  3. Remove your card when prompted and take your receipt. Keep in mind, you may need to sign for your purchase.

EMV Frequently Asked Questions 

Q: Why does my Classic Bank Visa debit card now include a chip?

A: The U.S. is shifting to chip-enabled cards used at chip readers because chip technology has proven successful in reducing fraud in over 130 countries around the world. It's already the standard in Canada, Mexico, South America, Europe and Asia -- and will soon be the standard in the U.S. The embedded chip in your Classic Bank Visa debit card protects your card information by generating a unique transaction code each time you use your card at a chip-enabled register.

Q: Will this new chip-enabled Classic Bank Visa debit card change my account? 

A: No. Your new card has simply been updated to provide you with enhanced security. There are no changes to your existing account terms and conditions. 

Q: Will this change how I make purchases at chip-enabled registers?

A: If the register is chip-enabled, you will see a small change in how you process your transaction. You will be prompted to insert your card into the machine "known as dipping", and your card will remain in the terminal until the transaction has completed. You will be prompted to remove your card when the transaction is complete.
