Card Control New Fraud Prevention
Forest Area Federal Credit Union (FAFCU) offers a Visa debit card at no cost to members. Thanks to our instant-issue technology, you'll have your new card in hand when you walk out our doors.
Visa debit cards offer many benefits, but here are a few:
FAFCU's Debit Card Round up can assist members by automatically "rounding-up" debit card purchase (attached to Share Draft Account only) and depositing the funds into a designated Share or Christmas Club.
When a Debit Card purchase is made, FAFCU rounds up the transaction to the nearest dollar, and the increased amount is then transferred to a designated account. The round up process is not posted immediately, on a per-transaction basis. Instead, a daily process will calculate the round up amount for all Debit Card transactions posted that night.
The Card Control function, located within the FAFCU mobile app will allow you to lock and unlck your card(s) at any time. You'll also be able to view recent transactions; receive alerts any time the card is used, and if necessary, report a card lost or stolen with the touch of a button.
To access the feature and enroll your FAFCU cards, log into the FAFCU mobile app, select "more" in the lower right corner and then "Manage my Card."
