Within minutes, you'll see the card appear locked. Locking your card will prevent new transactions, while still allowing recurring transactions, pre-authorized payments and refunds to post to your account.

Once your card is unlocked, you may resume transactions and payments.

No, please dispute the transaction in Online Banking, and then we will block the card and send you a new card. We recommend you lock your card for temporary misplacement. If you suspect fraudulent charges or you’re certain you’ve lost your card, please proceed to the “Replace Card” feature.

No, the card will show up in the mobile wallet, but authorizations will be declined.

Traveling to across state? Or to another country? Give us a heads-up, so we don’t block your travel purchases. During those travel dates, we will keep an eye on your card but won’t deny any transactions coming from your travel location.

Note: Only one Travel Notification can be placed. Any subsequent Travel Notifications placed before the first one has completed will overwrite any existing notifications. If you have any questions or concerns, please send us a secure message.

Please send us a secure message if you need to modify or cancel a travel alert.
