Engage Federal Credit Union is pleased to offer new instant issue debit cards to the long list of convenient member benefits. The new instant issue debit cards allow members immediate access to their accounts via debit card, with on-the-spot card activation. Many financial institutions require debit cardholders to wait 7 to 14 business days for a card to arrive in the mail. Instant issue cards also eliminate the possibility of account tampering, as cards can be lost or stolen in the mail. The instant issue card is one part of a total suite of member Connection Solutions that Engage will be rolling out this year. “As always, our focus is to maintain the highest-quality member experience. Improving technology is an ongoing initiative at Engage. Member convenience and safety are top priorities,” explains Kathy Deloney, CEO of Engage. Some of the benefits instant issue debit cards offer members include:

Custom card design options and member-selected PINs;
Immediate account access for new members and cardholders;
Real-Time Messaging – Members receive real-time notifications alerts when your card is used. This gives our members another layer of fraud protection and it allows you to keep up with all activity in your account . It’s perfect for joint accounts shared with your high school or college student;
Members can rapidly replace lost or stolen cards;
Increased security provides peace of mind.
