Important Debit Card Updates

We’re upgrading your debit card to create better security for all of us! Erie Community Credit Union debit cards will soon include EMV chip technology. The embedded EMV microchip on the front of the card encrypts your personal and purchase information into a unique code that makes card replication and fraud more difficult when used with the EMV payment method.

New debit cards along with activation instructions will be mailed out to all current cardholders in March.

  • Please note, you cannot activate or use your new card until 8:00 AM on Monday, April 2, 2018.
  • You will no longer be able to use your existing Erie Community CU debit card after 11:59 PM on April 1, 2018.
  • Your card number and PIN (Personal Identification Number) will remain the same as your previous card. If you would like to change your PIN, you may do so by calling
  • If you have recurring payments setup, you will need to provide each merchant with your card’s new expiration date and CVC code.  

If you have any questions or need additional assistance regarding your new ECCU Mastercard® Debit Card, please contact a credit union representative.
