Chip Card Technology
Your Resource® Plus Debit Card will include chip technology for enhanced security.
Things to know about chip cards:
- A chip card is a credit or debit card embedded with a microchip. The chip adds a new layer of protection against fraud for purchases made at merchants who use chip terminals.
- Information programmed into the chip is personalized for your account and each transaction generates a unique code, adding an extra safeguard against unauthorized use and counterfeiting.
- These cards are already in wide use around the world and are now becoming the standard in the U.S.
- Your Resource® Plus debit card still has a magnetic stripe, so you can continue to use your card at merchants who have not yet upgraded their terminals to accept chip technology.
