Dupaco's new VISA® card to offer added security

Dupaco Community Credit Union members will soon have access to an even safer VISA credit card.
Chip-enhanced VISA credit cards are in the final testing phase and will start being issued early next year. Over the span of about 10 months in 2015, all members will receive their enhanced card, which offers added layers of security and protection against card fraud.

“Keeping our members’ financial information safe remains our top priority,” says Todd Link, vice president of remote services at Dupaco.

The smart cards contain an embedded chip that will improve card security and enable them to be used internationally.

The new cards, which will be accepted everywhere VISA is accepted today, will work much like existing cards. The card will either be swiped for payment (at non-chip-accepting merchants) or inserted into the payment terminal (at chip-accepting merchants).

Members do not need to order the card, and there will not be a cost to receive the new card.
