Debit Card FAQ's

How do I order a new debit card?

A new debit card can be printed at your nearest branch location or call 800.822.0382 to order a new debit or ATM card.

When will I receive my card?

Your debit card can be printed instantly at any branch location. If you choose postal mail, it could take up to 10 business days to receive your Debit Card. Arrival time may take longer due to instances such as weather or massive card mailings.
If you have not received your card after this timeframe, please contact a Truliant representative at 800.822.0382 for assistance.

Can I select my own PIN for my debit card?

If you are an established cardholder and either don’t know, have forgotten your PIN or need to change your PIN for your debit card please call 800.822.0382. To expedite the process please be sure to have your debit card available.

What is the difference between a Credit Card and a Debit Card?

A debit card draws from the money you have available in your checking account. When you use your debit card, funds are immediately withdrawn from your checking account.
When you use a credit card, you are borrowing money from a finite line of credit offered by Truliant, depending on your credit limit. Each month you will receive a statement specifying your purchase amounts and details, as well as the minimum payment due. If you do not pay off your credit card in full each month you will be charged interest on the money you owe.

What should I do when my card is being denied at a merchant?

There are several reasons that a card could be denied. For security reasons, the specifics of your situation must be dealt with in confidence.
During business hours, please call a member service representative at 800.822.0382 or visit a branch location to go over your transaction history.

Can I use my debit card while traveling internationally?

Yes, your debit card and credit card are accepted internationally! If your ATM card is linked to a checking account, it will also be accepted internationally. Travel notifications are no longer needed.

Can a loan payment be made with a debit card?
