EMV CHIP CARD
What is an EMV Chip Card?
EMV stands for Europay, Mastercard and Visa. An EMV card in the United States has
a chip and a magnetic strip. The card can be used at a chip-enabled terminal or a
When will my credit card be replaced with the Chip?
When your current HAFCU VISA card expires, we’ll automatically replace it with an
EMV card. But if you would like your new EMV replacement credit card before your
current card expires, just request a new card by contacting the credit union.
Are EMV Chip Cards more secure?
Yes, they are more secure that a card with the magnetic strip cards. Every time an
EMV card is used for payment, the chip card creates a unique transaction code that
cannot be used again. It is unique to that transaction.
How do I use the EMV Chip Card?
>Insert the card…Instead of swiping, you’ll insert the card
into the terminal, chip first, face up.
>Leave the Card in the Terminal…The card must remain
in the terminal during the entire transaction.
>Sign the Receipt or Enter a PIN…Either sign the
receipt or enter your PIN to complete the transaction.
>Remove Your Card…When the purchase is complete,
remember to take your card with you.
