You may already have a chip card, or you may be getting one in the future. The chip is located on the front of the card and the magnetic stripe remains on the back of the card. The chip on the card is to provide additional security.
When using your card at a terminal that isn’t chip-enabled, you will use your card as you have in the past.
If you swipe your card and the terminal is chip-enabled, it will prompt you to insert the card.
For terminals that ARE chip-enabled, you will need to insert your card instead of swiping it and the card will need to remain in the terminal until the transaction has completed.
Using your chip card at an ATM may differ based on the type of ATM.
If your card isn’t visible when you put it in the ATM, a chip-enabled ATM will automatically recognize the chip on the card. Please keep in mind that your chip card will be returned at the end of the transaction. If you wish to complete multiple items, you will need to put your card in separately for each item, ex.) balance inquiry, funds transfer, withdrawal. It is important to remember to take your card once the transaction is complete.
