EMV Chip Card Technology

In an effort to provide you with added security, we will be replacing your current Hastings City Bank debit card with an EMV Chip Card.  A chip card is like the card you currently have, but includes an embedded microchip. The chip contains information that is encrypted, making it extremely difficult for the card to be copied or counterfeited. Your chip card will also have a magnetic strip on the back so you can continue using your card while merchants are transitioning to new chip enabled terminals. Your new card will have the same card number and pin. Simply activate your new card when it arrives over the next few weeks.
