EMV Chip Card Q&A
What is a chip card, and why am I getting one?

Will anything change during my online purchases?
No, your online purchases will remain the same.
- You may withdraw up to a maximum of $500.00 in cash per day (if there are sufficient funds in your account).
- You may purchase up to a maximum of $500.00 worth of goods and services per day, including retail purchases where you utilize your PIN and point of sale transactions, exclusive of ATM withdrawals.
- For security purposes, there are limits on the frequency and amount of transfers you may make using ATMs.
Limits on Transfer Frequency
For security reasons and to enforce federal regulations, there are certain limits on the number of transfers you can make. Each of your Savings accounts is limited by federal regulations to six (6) telephone, online, and/or preauthorized transfers per month. If this is exceeded, we reserve the right to charge your account and/or change your account to a transaction account that will allow an unlimited number of transfers. In-person withdrawals and ATM transactions are not limited by federal regulations.
Enhancements to Security for Debit/Check Card Customers
Here at Catahoula-LaSalle Bank we take pride in making sure that all of our customer information is kept safe and secure. With the growing number of fraud and online purchases happening in the world today, we want to make sure that we are taking every step to protect our customers and their privacy. That is why we take great pride in introducing the implementation of a new Fraud Prevention Program that adds another layer of security and protection for our Debit/Check card customers.
One of the main features of this new security is card activity monitoring. If any suspicious activity is monitored on your account using your Debit/Check card, it will trigger a flag and the customer will be contacted via the phone number provided on their account. If the customer verifies themselves as the purchaser then activity will resume. If it is found that the customer is not the purchaser, or that the card was lost or stolen, then the card will be deactivated immediately. We hope that with this program it will allow for a more relaxing experience for our customers in knowing that these measures are in place for your protection.
Here are a few ways that you the customer can help us ensure that you remain protected:
- Make sure that the bank has the correct current contact information for you including both home and mobile phone numbers.
- If you are planning on traveling, more so if out of state, take the time to contact the bank and inform them of your plans. We can then note to expect card activity in the area you will be in and avoid any inconvenience to you on your trip.
Technology and security are a forever changing industry. Our goal is to provide a safe, secure, and enjoyable experience for all of our customers here at Catahoula-LaSalle Bank.
