Activating Your EMV Chip Debit Card

You should have recently received a replacement Visa debit card, which now comes with EMV chip technology. Please take a moment to activate your new card before your existing card is deactivated.

Haven't received your new EMV debit card yet?

To protect you from any potential fraud, when you order your new EMV chip debit card, you will be provided with a new card number. Please take a moment to verify your mailing address by logging into Online Banking, calling Member Services, or by visiting a Bellco branch to ensure you receive your new card. 

Need to place an order to receive your new EMV debit card? 

  • For an immediate debit card replacement, visit any Bellco branch
  • To order a new EMV chip debit card through Online Banking, log in to your online account and select Other Services, Order a Debit Card, then choose the desired checking account, and select New Card  in the drop-down menu. By selecting New Card, your existing debit card will continue to work while you wait for your new card to be mailed to you. Please verify your mailing address through Online Banking.

Please make sure to update any recurring merchant payments that you have previously set up when your new card arrives. You should receive your new card within 7-10 business days.
