My card is expiring. What do I need to do?

You may continue to use your debit card through the month of expiration. You will receive a replacement card in the mail halfway through the expiration month.

Please note, if you have recently moved you may need to update your address with Busey so there are no disruptions with the reissue of your debit card.

What is a contactless payment?

A contactless payment is a payment transaction that does not require physical contact between a payment card and point-of-sale (POS) terminal. When a contactless (dual interface) chip card, mobile phone, or wearable device is held close to the terminal (less than 1-2 inches away), payment account information is transmitted wirelessly, over radio frequency (RF).

How safe are contactless cards?

Contactless cards are safe, highly secured with encryption and have the same protection as EMV chip cards. Transactions are cryptographically secure and generate a unique code for each transaction. This allows issuers to automatically detect and reject any attempt to use the same transaction information more than once. Personal information such as the cardholder’s name cannot be read.

Where can a contactless card be used?

A contactless card can be used anywhere that accepts card payments. To use the contactless feature, look for the antenna icon or the word “TAP” on the terminal. If the terminal or ATM does not support contactless, insert your card as usual to use the chip, or on older terminals, swipe it to use the magnetic strip. Contactless cards can also be used to make purchases online or by phone in the same way you do today.

When will I receive a contactless card?

Contactless cards will be reissued to current Busey debit cardholders based on the expiration date of the current card. 

When cards are reissued at expiration, will the new contactless card have a new card number?

No. The Busey debit card number stays the same, but the CVV and expiration date will be updated.

Does the card information need to be updated for recurring payments?

Yes. Because the CVV on the back of the card and the expiration date were changed, it is recommended that the debit card information be updated with the merchant so the payment will not be declined.

Can I dispute a debit card transactions? 

Yes. If there is an unauthorized debit card transaction on your account please contact Busey to complete the dispute. If there is an authorized transactions you wish to dispute, please contact the merchant directly.
