EMV Cards

City CU takes the security of your account and your identity seriously. We have implemented EMV chip technology into our plastic cards. With EMV chips, every transaction you perform is unique, making it extremely hard for the card to be copied or counterfeited.


Your City CU EMV MasterCard® is enhanced with chip technology. This means your card has additional security features and the ability to be used at chip-enabled payment terminals at your favorite stores both close to home and around the world.

Added security

Chip cards contain an embedded microchip for a more secure transaction. You will be required to sign for transactions or enter your PIN at chip-enabled payment terminals, just as you always have.

Global Acceptance

Chip technology is already in wide use around the world. This makes traveling locally and internationally with your chip card hassle free.

Great benefits

In addition to the latest technology, your card also has the following benefits:

  • Accepted at millions of locations worldwide.
  • 24/7 Cardholder service by calling (888) 305-1063.
  • Protection from unauthorized purchases.


Your card has an embedded microchip for a more secure transaction simply insert your card at checkout into a chip-friendly reader. If a chip-friendly reader is not available, you can swipe your card as you always have.

When you use your chip card, you will follow the prompts and sign to verify who you are or enter your pin at checkout. The card terminal will tell you what you need to do.
