- Use it to pay your bills. Whether it’s your phone or cable TV bill, your gym membership or Internet service provider, paying bills with your debit card is easy, convenient, and safe. Say goodbye to writing checks for all your different bills, buying stamps, and getting everything in the mail on time to avoid late payments.

It’s faster and more convenient than mailing a check, and you have peace of mind that your payment is made on time.

* This applies to ATM withdrawals within the United States. Rebates for ATM transactions outside of the United States will be calculated based upon conversion to U.S. dollars of the amount of the ATM withdrawal plus any applicable fee.
Minimizing the threat of fraud is a matter of having the right tools in place. We monitor debit card transactions for suspicious activity and fraud utilizing real-time fraud monitoring. This aids in the prevention of fraud immediately by declining the transaction while the fraudster is still at the point-of-sale. When fraudulent card activity is suspected, we will attempt to contact you by email, phone or text within our records to verify the transaction.
Before taking that much needed vacation to the islands or visiting your extended family overseas, please contact us with the dates and locations. Providing us with a travel notification will assist us in monitoring your account accordingly to minimize the chances of your debit card being blocked or flagged for unusual activity while traveling outside the United States. You may also want to update our records to include a mobile phone number where you can be reached as well as an email address.
In addition, it is important to note that we maintain a list of Blocked Countries which means that you may be unable to utilize your debit card for certain transactions while traveling in one of these countries. If you are planning to travel to a country listed in our Blocked Countries list, please give us a call so that we may discuss alternative means of accessing cash while you are away.
We do not charge a fee for ATM withdrawals. However, you may be charged a fee by the financial institution that owns the ATM. Check out our listing of FREE ATMS for the no-fee ATM nearest you. Please be advised that these listings may change at any time. If an ATM is now assessing a surcharge, the ATM should disclose this information.
