Stay up-to-date on all things Northern Skies FCU



Many members will be receiving their new EMV chip secured card in the mail.

Here is some important information that you need to know:

  • Primary account card numbers and PIN will remain the same.
  • Any joint or authorized user cards will have a new number and PIN (will arrive in the mail separately).
  • All cards will have a new expiration date.

What you need to do:

  • Activate your new card as soon as you receive it.
    • Your current VISA card will be closed as soon as you activate your new card or approximately 30 days after you should have received it, whichever comes first.
    • Activate your card TODAY with a simple visit to or by calling 800-411-6390 (206-352-3477 international) and follow the prompts.
  • Sign the back of your new card now and verify that your information is correct.
  • Because the expiration date(s) have changed, please update the information for any automatic payments you may have previously scheduled with other vendors.
  • Utilize the added EMV chip security features by "dipping your chip" instead of swiping you card stripe whenever possible.

What's different about your new card:

In addition to still having a magnetic stripe, EMV cards have a small chip embedded into the plastic. This chip secures data better than the magnetic stripe because it generates a unique, single-use transaction code with each payment.

This means that in the event of a security breach at the point-of-sale, any data stolen from an EMV chip would not be able to be used to make additional purchases or further compromise your card or information.
