2019 Credit Card Update

Learn more about all the ways your credit card is changing.

On January 22, 2019, we started mailing new UFCU credit cards to our business account credit cardholders so they can take advantage of our improved credit card offerings, benefits, and rewards. Each new card will have its own unique credit card number, so individual account activity will be distinct from the activity of other cardholders on the account.

To ensure you receive your new credit card, please verify we have your correct mailing address on file through Online Banking or by contacting us today.

What’s Changing Now and What You Need to Do

Your new VISA® credit card replaces your current UFCU credit card. Your new card comes with many benefits, as well as a new credit card number, expiration date, security code, and PIN. You’ll need to complete the following steps after you receive your new card(s):

  1. On or after February 25, 2019, call (866) 928-5450 to activate your card(s). Your current card(s) will be deactivated on February 25, 2019. Once you activate your new card, the balance on your current card will transfer automatically.
  2. Destroy and discard your previous card(s). 
  3. Contact all merchants, billers, and service providers who rely on your credit card(s) and provide the new account information to them. This might include your wireless, cable and/or internet providers, insurance companies, highway toll accounts, and any online merchants with whom you shop regularly.
  4. As of February 22, 2019, your account information will no longer be available via eZCard. Instead, you will have access to all of your accounts via UFCU Online Banking and Mobile Banking. Current Online Banking and Mobile Banking users will notice all business credit cards included in their list of accounts beginning February 25, 2019. If you are not currently enrolled in Online Banking or Mobile Banking, visit UFCU.org/go/enroll to get started.
  5. Only authorized signers on your account will have access to details via Online Banking and Mobile Banking.

What’s Not Changing for Your Business

  • We’re committed to service. You can continue to call or stop by any location for help with your account.
  • Each card on your account will continue to have a separate statement and its own minimum payment amount.
  • There is no cost to you. You will not be billed or charged for your new card(s).
  • Your new card will have the same great benefits and rewards as your previous card, and possibly more.
  • We’re committed to your security. You still get 100% liability protection on any fraudulent activity, so you can enjoy total peace of mind.
