Get Answers To Your Most Common Questions

What is a chip enhanced card?

New Deere Employees Credit Union chip-enhanced debit cards contain an embedded microchip.  This chip holds information that is encrypted, making it extremely difficult for the card to be copied or counterfeited.  Rather than swiping the card, it is inserted into a chip-enabled terminal to complete the transaction.  In addition to the embedded microchip, new debit cards will still have a magnetic stripe on the back so purchases can be made by swiping the card at merchants that have not yet switched to chip-enabled terminals.

How do I activate my debit card?
