Visa® Debit Check Card
|Lost/Stolen Visa Cards|
The better way to make all of your everyday purchases. The Visa® Debit Card offers control, security and convenience – you may never write another check again.
A Visa Debit card works like a check, only better. When you make purchases, the amount is deducted directly from your checking account, but you also enjoy added convenience and security protections. Security safeguards include your own PIN (Personal Identification Number).
FAQ EMV Security
What is EMV chip card technology?
EMV (Europay, Mastercard, Visa) chip card technology is a global collaboration and standard for increasing the security of debit and credit card transactions. A special microchip is embedded in the card, which adds another layer of security to cards when used at a chip-enabled terminal. Simply put, it's a more secure way to pay.
Farmers State Bank is in the process of switching to this more secure payment technology. We are currently reissuing all debit cards with chip cards.
I got my chip card today. What do I need to do now?
First, please activate your chip card by calling the number on the activation sticker. Activating your chip card cancels your old card, so there is no need to call in to cancel it. However, your old card will automatically be canceled to protect the security of your account, so it's best to activate your chip card as soon as you get it.
Why should I know my PIN? I always choose "credit" during a purchase.
With the new chip card technology, some merchants are only allowing debit transactions, requiring you to know your PIN. If you have forgotten your PIN or would like a new one, please call us for a PIN reset at .
How will it work?
Using your new chip card will be easy. If a business is chip card capable, you will “dip” your card instead of swiping it. Your magnetic strip will still work for businesses who do not yet accept chip cards. As the U.S. shifts progressively to chip card technology, you will “dip” your card more often.
What are the benefits to me?
Increased security and reduced fraud potential are the biggest benefits of chip card technology. Migrating to a chip card will also make overseas payments much easier since the majority of the world has already migrated to chip card technology
