Q: What is the benefit of a chip card?EMV Steps (2)

A: Chip cards are a standard payment method around the world, so having this feature makes purchasing abroad much easier.  A card with a microchip is more secure than one with just a magnetic stripe on the back because the account information is encrypted in the chip making it more difficult to fraudulently copy the card details.

Q: Will my card work outside the United States?

A: Yes.  Your chip card will work at merchants processing transactions using a chip-enabled terminal or using a magnetic stripe reader.  Your chip card can be used anywhere in the world where Visa cards are accepted.

Q: Can I use my card for everyday transactions domestically?

A: Yes.  In addition to the embedded microchip, your card has a magnetic stripe on the back.  That way you can make purchases by swiping your card and signing the receipt.  You can also use your card at ATMs.

Q: Now that I have a chip card should I continue to notify you before I travel internationally?

A: Yes.  Advance notification will help ensure that legitimate purchases are approved.

Q: Whom can I contact if I have questions or concerns about my Maine Highlands Federal Credit Union chip card?

A: Contact a Maine Highlands Federal Credit Union Member Service Representative at 888.806.6920
