    The benefits of a Tech CU VISA® CheckCard


    • When you get a Tech CU VISA® CheckCard, you're automatically enrolled in VISA®'s Personal Identity Theft Program. For details, please download: VISA® Personal ID Theft program details (PDF) 
    • VISA®'s Zero Liability policy means 100% protection for you. VISA®'s enhanced policy guarantees maximum protection against fraud, so you have complete liability protection for all of your card transactions that take place on the VISA® system.
    • Our CheckCard Fraud Management program actively monitors all CheckCard transactions for fraudulent activities.


    • Use your VISA® CheckCard for all your purchases, instead of writing a check. Because the VISA® CheckCard carries the VISA® logo, it can be used in place of a check for purchases wherever VISA® is accepted, worldwide.
    • The VISA® CheckCard is NOT a credit card – there is no monthly bill to pay. Your purchase is debited directly from your Tech CU checking account automatically.
    • Use it as an ATM Card to withdraw cash, make deposits and loan payments, to obtain mini-statements, and to perform account transfers. 
    • The VISA® CheckCard can also be used for purchases at any Point of Sale (POS) location, such as gas stations and grocery stores.
