EMV Chip Cards Issued


Beginning March 2016 all new or re-issued WEA Credit Union Shazam debit cards have been issued with the EMV chip.  This chip is an extra security feature that makes it extremely difficult for fraudsters to duplicate or emulate a debit card.  Beginning summer of 2017 all remaining WEACU Shazam debit cards will be converted to an EMV chip card regardless of the expiration date.  When you receive your new chip card it's important that you activate it by performing a PIN transaction.  Once the chip card has been activated please destroy the non chip card.  If you have any questions please contact one of our Member Service Representatives.
