Our debit card gives you the easiest way to access your account for everyday purchases. Plus, if you want to earn rewards without taking on any debt, a  VISA® Debit Card is the answer. It links with your accounts, freeing you up to make purchases quickly and conveniently while earning points to redeem on travel, merchandise and much more. Also, all First United Community Offices offer Instant Issue Debit Card printing, allowing you the ability to get your new card instantly; and all cards feature chip card technology for better security when using chip-enabled terminals!

Your VISA card is now equipped with Verified by Visa. It passwords protects your card for free, adding an additional level of password protection to online transactions with participating merchants, all for no extra cost. Verified by Visa requires online activation and is for use only at participating online merchants.

Access 1,000's of ATMs Across the Country

Security in Payments

Our debit chip enabled (EMV) cards feature an embedded chip that improves security every time you make purchases at chip-enabled terminals. You get enhanced fraud protection with chip technology. This tiny chip protects you from fraud by creating a unique code for each chip transaction. This prevents card data from being fraudulently used. As more stores and restaurants around the world are using chip card readers, you can use your card in the U.S. and abroad with even more confidence.

Mag-Stripe Still Accepted

If a merchant hasn't switched to the new chip card reader, don't worry! Your card will still have a magnetic stripe for use at traditional retailers. For online and phone purchases, you can continue to place orders the same way you do today!

VISA® Account Updater (VAU)

All First United debit cards also feature VISA Account Updater. VAU is an account updating service in which your card is automatically enrolled. When your card(s) expire, or if they are lost or stolen, and a new card(s) are issued, the service may update relevant card data (card numbers and expiration dates) to appropriate merchants who participate in an effort to facilitate uninterrupted processing of your charges.

This service provides updates to a VISA database only. The database is accessed by those qualified merchants seeking your account information after you have requested they process payments. This service is provided as a free benefit to you.

If at anytime you wish to opt-out of the VAU service or if you have any questions, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-888-692-2654.
