Temporary Instant Debit Cards

The Temporary Instant Debit Card service enables credit unions to instantly issue a secure non-personalized Visa or MasterCard debit card in-branch without investing in equipment and software.

Temporary card stock is pre-embossed with "Valued Member" or an alternate custom selection. The cardholder can select a 4-digit PIN. Branch personnel activate the temporary card, and the cardholder can begin using the PIN and card immediately. The permanent, personalized card is mailed directly to the cardholder.
