Just Do It: Get a PIN for Your TCU MasterCard
If you have already received a new “chipped” credit or debit card from us, you may have noticed how store clerks now stick the end of your card into the payment terminal, instead of swiping it along the edge. (We’re replacing cards about to expire with chipped cards.) This is an “EMV” transaction.
The terminal reads the security chip on the new cards, which does a much better job of protecting against fraud than the old magnetic stripe. As before, you are not liable for any fraudulent charges, should they ever occur.
However, you do need to know your PIN for both debit and credit cards for EMV transactions. (It verifies you as a TCU cardholder.) If you have a TCU MasterCard, but don’t know your PIN, it’s free and easy to obtain. Just call 888-886-0083 to have it reset to a PIN of your choice.
Important note: You must know the phone number on file to activate a card or change your PIN.
A TCU MasterCard is the card of choice for Teamsters. It has no annual fee, a 25-day grace period,** and the same low rate for both purchases and cash advances. There’s no liability if your card is lost or stolen, and we don’t pile on fees the way most “big bank” cards do. Learn more or apply here.
**We will not charge any interest on the portion of the purchases balance that you pay by the due date each month. There is no grace period for cash advances.
