  • New Feature for Your New Debit Card

    05/16/2017

    You should now have your brand new chip-enhanced debit card in hand! Not only will the chip help to prevent fraud when used with your PIN at a merchant, but we've added an extra layer of security.

    Fond du Lac Credit Union is introducing the SHAZAM BOLT$ app, which allows you to access balance information anytime, anywhere. SHAZAM BOLT$ adds another layer of protection to your debit card by allowing you to set up transaction or suspicious activity alerts.

    SHAZAM BOLT$ can immediately alert you to potentially fraudulent activity for:

    • A debit purchase for more than an amount you specify
    • Any card-not-present debit transaction (i.e., phone, internet, mail)
    • Any suspicious or high-risk transaction that occurs on your account

    The newest feature is transaction control. With the quick tap of a button you’ll be able to block or unblock your card, without affecting previous transactions.  So if your card is stolen, goes missing or you just want to pause it while traveling now you can with the tap of a button.

    This feature not only provides you peace of mind, but also saves you the hassle associated with losing a card. Simply block your card until you find it, then unblock it for instant use. This fast and simple security feature takes fraud safety up a notch.

    SHAZAM BOLT$ is available for smartphones, tablets and any home computer with an internet connection. Download SHAZAM BOLT$ today on the Apple® App Store® or Google Play™ and follow the instructions.

  • Collecting for Comfort

    05/11/2017
    In order to wear jeans on Fridays this month, our employees are donating cash and supplies to the Solutions Center. Here is what the Solutions Center is all about:

    Solutions Center exists to serve two very different concerns: Domestic Abuse and Homelessness.

    While these two issues may have their dis-similarities, they have one very important thing in common – they affect human beings.

    Solutions Center:

    • Nurtures the dignity of the human spirit
    • Helps those in need
    • Provides safety, offers support and restores hope

    Oftentimes, domestic abuse and homelessness aren’t so distantly related. Many of our victims of domestic abuse find themselves homeless because they’ve left their homes in fear of their own safety. Many of our homeless clients have dealt with abusive families for years, including in their childhood.

    We come to find, in many cases, these two issues are inextricably linked and Solutions Center is extremely well-equipped to help people dealing with either…or both.

    Solutions Center offers a multitude of services to those dealing with domestic abuse and homelessness.  Our staff is made up of caring and dedicated professionals, on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to work closely with those in crisis.  Our professionals understand that every situation is different, and services are personalized to each individual that is in need of assistance.

    Individuals in crisis are encouraged to contact Solutions Center at any time.

  • New Debit Card Questions & Answers

    04/25/2017
    If you have a FDLCU debit card, you recently received a letter outlining the upcoming debit card changes. Some members have already called with questions so we thought it might be helpful to post them with the answers here.

    Will the new card have a chip?
    Yes - this was explained in the April 1 Newsletter you received with your statement, on our website and on Facebook.

    I am going to be on vacation when the cards switch, how will I access my money?
    You can get a Travel Money Card from the Credit Union (which is safer for travel anyway). Otherwise if you receive your new card before you leave - take it with you and activate it by phone and use it beginning May 8.

    Will it be the same PIN I have been using?
    No - You will receive a new PIN a couple days after your new card arrives. You may call the number in the letter to change the PIN if you would like it to be something easier for you to remember.

    I have recurring payments on the current card. How do I change it with the merchants (or utilities)?
    You should be able to edit your "payment method" when you log in to the accounts for which you have automatic payments set up. If you have trouble making the change, contact the merchant.

    Will the new debit card be able to be used as credit (like in the past)?
    Yes - you will be able to use the new card just as you did the old one.

    Will this new card replace my Credit Card?
    No - this is a debit card.
  • Debit Card and ATM Conversion Coming Soon

    03/20/2017
       We're upgrading your debit card to create better security for all of us!
       If you have a Fond du Lac Credit Union VISA debit card it will be replaced with MasterCard chip enhanced card to take advantage of new payment security standards that will help reduce card fraud.
       What's changing? VISA will be replaced by MasterCard and have an embedded computer chip that improves card security by generating a single-use code to validate the transaction. This code is virtually impossible to counterfeit and helps reduce in-store fraud.
       What’s staying the same? Your card will still have a magnetic stripe, so you can still use your card at merchants who haven’t installed the new chip card readers.
       When will I receive my new card? Your new MasterCard will arrive the end of April or the first few days of May. You must begin using your new card on May 8, 2017. Your old non-chip VISA will no longer work as of this date.
     **ATM WILL BE UNAVAILABLE**
       Our ATM located at 126 N. Main Street will be unavailable from Thursday, May 4th through Monday, May 8th so it can be converted to accept EMV cards. The ATM at 91 N. Pioneer Road will be unavailable on May 8th only due to conversion.

  • EMV Debit Cards Coming Soon

    03/01/2017
    Fond du Lac Credit Union is in the process of replacing current debit cards with EMV chip cards. The new EMV chip debit card will include the magnetic strip your current card has. This means that you will be able to use the EMV chip at retailers who support EMV processing, and the magnetic strip at all other locations. The change will take place in May. More information will be provided in our April Newsletter.
