Chip Debit Cards

Debit Cards with Chip Technology

You may have already heard about - or even used - debit or credit cards with chip technology, the new standard in card payments. Chip cards feature an embedded microchip that encrypts data to help prevent fraud.

First Merchants credit cards already use chip technology, and we are now implementing chip technology on our debit cards. Throughout 2016 and 2017, we will be sending out chip cards to replace existing debit cards - you do not need to take action in order to receive a new card.
