Why am I getting a new card early?
You may be surprised to receive a new AAFCU Visa Credit Card or AAFCU Debit Freedom Card much sooner than you expected. Although your expiration date YEAR may be 2017 or 2018, you will still receive a new card in 2017…during whichever month your card was set to expire, regardless of year. Why is this happening?
Please refer to a recent post on our website about EMV Chip cards (it’s the post right after this one). We have accelerated the reissue of our cards as EMV Chip cards to better protect both our individual members, and the credit union as a whole. EMV Chip cards are much more secure and less vulnerable to loss due to fraud. Please watch your mail carefully in the month your card is set to renew. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact AAFCU.
