Tips for Traveling

If you are headed out of town, give us a quick call to let us know.  One of the ways we protect you is to block suspicious transactions, including unexpected out-of-town purchases.  Your call will save you the inconvenience of having your card declined.

Always be mindful of your personal security when accessing an ATM.  Put your money and your card away immediately after making a withdrawal.  Count your money later, out of public view.  Extra tip:  If you can’t find an ATM and need cash, ask for cash back when you use your debit card for purchases at retail locations.

Monitor your account frequently.  Checking your acount balance is a great way to combat fraud.

Report a lost or stolen card immediately.  Be sure to contact us for our emergency travel phone numbers before your trip and keep them in a safe place.
