The U.S. is poised to upgrade its debit and credit card (payment card) security systems in an effort to fight skyrocketing fraud costs. And while federal regulations already protect you, as a consumer, from liability for most fraudulent transactions a crook could make using your account, when payment industry participants are hit by fraud, everyone’s costs increase.
That’s why the U.S. industry plans to implement EMV (Europay, MasterCard, and Visa) cards, which contain computer chips that authorize or validate payment-card transactions. We’re the last developed country in the world to do so. Here’s how the change will affect you:
I moved out older than most people — at 25. I did this because I was a.) too cheap, b.) never home anyway and that just did not make much sense to me, and c.) I went through a very tragic event and had too much anxiety to be alone. Enough of the sob story.

I have a lot of stuff. A lot of expensive stuff.
We’ve officially gone live with your new online banking experience, and we couldn’t be more excited! Your new and improved online banking offers a modern design and is faster and easier to use. Here are a few of the improvements we’re most excited about:
Reinstatement of tax credits for energy-efficient home improvements was part of the American Taxpayer Relief Act.
Congress made the tax credits retroactive, which means that improvements you made in 2012 and 2013 qualify. The program has a cap of $500 in total credits and the improvements must be made to your principal residence. To make sure that the product you’re purchasing qualifies for the energy credit, check the IRS website atirs.gov.
Our all new online banking platform has a consistent look and feel across all devices, making it even easier for you to do what you need to do –even quicker!
With a consistent design across all your devices, banking anytime, anywhere has never been simpler. Here’s a quick preview of some of the exciting improvements we’ve made to create a more user-friendly and consistent experience for you.
