ABOUT YOUR CARD
1. Why is the word “Debit” on the front of my card?
In response to new Visa and MasterCard regulations, Issuers are required to label non-credit products with the term “Debit” after January 1, 2004. Although your card may have the word debit on it, please remember to push credit and sign for purchases at the point of sale in order to indicate you authorize your transaction.
2. What is an “Account Maintenance” fee
Your account may be subject to a monthly “Account Maintenance Fee” if it is inactive. An inactive account is defined as an account that meets all three of the following criteria: (1) Your account has been open for at least six months; and (2) You have not added
funds or received a payment; and (3) You have not made a transaction that resulted in journal activity with the account in a 90 day period. If your card is being loaded with funds, you will not be assessed the maintenance fee.
3. How is my card different than a credit card?
A credit card gives you a line of credit, which you have to pay back. Conversely, this card is a debit card that is loaded with YOUR money. You can spend or withdraw the funds as you see fit, but you can’t spend more than your current available card balance.
4. Will I receive a separate billing statement for my card?

online, please contact Customer Service to find out if other statement options are available for your card.
