Why do I need to activate my new card?

Earlier this year we sent replacement debit cards to all customers.

This new black debit card replaces your existing yellow debit card. You need to activate it because your yellow debit card will stop working soon.

Don’t wait until your current debit card expires. You must activate your black debit card now to continue being able to withdraw cash and make card payments on your account.
