Beginning in October 2015, RTP Federal Credit Union will begin issuing EMV chip cards. Newly issued Visa Debit Card and Credit Cards will contain this new technology and we will begin phasing into replacement of all Visa Cards. This change in card technology is part of RTP FCU's continued efforts to provide the most secure and up-to-date technology for our members, helping to keep your money safe.
