Nebraska Energy Federal Credit Union has begun re-issuing all credit and debit cards with chip-based technology. This new feature will make your NE-FCU credit or debit card more secure, enable it to be used at more places around the world and best of all, come at no-cost to you.
Europay, Mastercard, VISA or EMV cards contain a small metal chip that holds encrypted card information. Every time you use a chip card at a chip-enhanced terminal, a unique transaction code is created that protects your information. Because of this technology, an EMV chip card is nearly impossible to counterfeit and dramatically increases the security of every transaction. Your transaction may take just a little longer to complete with a chip card, but the added security is well worth it.
On top of all the added security, you will be able to use your NE-FCU credit and debit cards at even more places worldwide. You'll enjoy even greater convenience anywhere you travel, as chip cards are common in over 130 countries, including Canada, Mexico, and the United Kingdom.
