Chip & PIN is a very similar technology, except that you use a PIN to complete a purchase instead of a signature. Both chip & PIN and chip & signature offer enhanced security against counterfeiting compared to the traditional magnetic stripe-only Cards.
You may need to update your card information where it is stored for recurring payments, such as online bills and subscriptions. Please update your recurring payment information to ensure that you do not miss a payment.
When you come across a chip-specific merchant terminal, simply insert your EMV card into the slot in the terminal and follow the prompts on the screen. You may still need to sign to authorize the transaction, and as usual you will receive a confirmation receipt.
If the Merchant terminal does not accept chip cards, you or the merchant can still swipe the EMV card in exactly the same way as you do today. You can always follow the prompts on the merchant terminal if you aren’t sure whether you should swipe or insert your Card.
Other issuers and companies may refer to chip cards differently, but all of these are different names for the same technology
The transaction flow with EMV payments is much the same but - with the addition of dynamic authentication and the chip technology - makes EMV transactions more secure:
EMV cards come with advanced security due to the chip technology that makes it difficult for a fraudster to counterfeit. These additional features help protect you when used at participating retailers.
We are moving quickly and aggressively to bring the next generation of secure banking to our members. New rules mandate all financial institutions in the US have this new EMV system in place by December 2015.
There is still time to implement the system but we chose to act now because so many merchant security breaches over the past two years have affected our members. Account security is our number one concern.
Thanks for working with us through these enhancements..
EMV, which stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa, is a global standard for credit and debit payment cards using embedded microchips. ISU Credit Union's EMV credit and debit cards have an embedded microchip that provides enhanced security features and added protection at payment terminals locally and abroad.

There is no cost to you whatsoever for the SavvyMoney credit score services or products provided by the Credit Union.
No. Checking SavvyMoney is a “soft inquiry,” which does not affect a credit score. Lenders use “hard inquiries” to make decisions about credit worthiness when you apply for loans.
SavvyMoney pulls your credit profile from TransUnion, one of the three major credit reporting bureaus, and uses VantageScore 3.0, a credit scoring model developed collaboratively by the three major credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. This model seeks to make score information more uniform between the three bureaus to provide consumers a better picture of their credit health.
No, ISU Credit Union uses its own lending criteria for making loan decisions.
SavvyMoney can help you manage your credit so when it comes time to borrow for a big-ticket purchase—like buying a home, car or paying for college—it provides you a clear picture of your credit health and can help you prepare to qualify for the lowest possible interest rate. You may also see offers on how you can save money on your new and existing loans with ISU Credit Union.
SavvyMoney uses bank level encryption and security measures to keep the data safe and secure. Your personal information is never shared with or sold to a third party.
SavvyMoney makes its best effort to show the most relevant information from a credit report. If you think some of the information is wrong or inaccurate, you can “File a Dispute” with Transunion by clicking on the “Dispute” link within SavvyMoney. If the inaccuracy is verified, Transunion will update your report. We would also suggest you obtain a free credit report from the other bureaus at www.annualcreditreport.com, and then dispute inaccuracies with each bureau individually. Each bureau has its own process for correcting inaccurate information.
No. Lookout Credit Union does not automatically reprice loans using the SavvyMoney score. Your loans are priced from the credit union’s lending criteria at the time of funding.
The credit bureau phone numbers for each of the credit bureaus are listed below:
