Visa Check Card

It's your checkbook and ATM card all in one! With your New Dimensions Visa Check Card, you can make purchases wherever Visa is accepted directly from your checking account. No more need to buy and write out paper checks!

Members without a Share Draft (checking) account can set up an ATM card for use with their Share Deposit account. Although the ATM card does have the Visa logo, it cannot be used in stores for point of sale purchases.

EMV Chip Cards

As the United States prepares to adopt the new Europay, Mastercard, and Visa (EMV) Technology with credit cards and debit cards, New Dimensions FCU wants to keep you informed and keep you up to date with our conversion!  

Exactly what is EMV Chip Card Technology? Although, it is relatively new to the United States, many international countries have been using this type of secure purchasing since 1994. 

What makes the EMV Chip so secure? All card data is stored on a small microprocessor chip embedded into the plastic of the credit or debit card. When making a purchase, instead of using the traditional swiping of the card that everyone is used to, you will simply tap the card against a terminal equipped to read the special microchip.

Why is this new improved card beneficial? The EMV Chip Card has an enhanced level of fraud protection. By utilizing the specialized microchip, the possibility of the unique card information such as PIN number, Name, Address, to be stolen will be significantly reduced. 

What does this change mean for you? Later this year, members will begin to receive their new EMV Chip Enabled Visa Debit Cards. Be sure to check out the New Dimensions FCU website for up to date information regarding these new cards.
