ATM & Check Cards
Access to your funds with the latest security technology
CB&T check cards with EMV Chip Card Technology allow you to pay for purchases with funds from your checking account, and access your funds and account information at ATMs with the security benefit of the EMV chip.
How does the EMV Chip Card work?
Our debit cards come with EMV chip card technology. The EMV chip card looks similar to the cards you currently carry in your wallet, but have a small embedded microchip on the front. Cards will initially have both a magnetic stripe as well as a chip to avoid any acceptance issues as retails are still working to switch to accommodate this new technology.
The EMV chip cards and the chip-activated terminals work together to protect your in-store payments. Every time you use a chip card at a chip-activated retail terminal, the embedded chip generates a one-time use code. This code is virtually impossible to counterfeit and helps reduce in-store fraud.
The chip cards do everything the magnetic stripe cards to, but even more securely.
