States or countries with high cases of card fraud may be blocked from usage for your protection. If you are planning a trip, notifying us allows us to unblock the card so that it works for the period you are visiting. For added peace of mind, enroll your credit and debit card for our free Fraud Prevention Text Alerts. Thank you for helping us significantly decrease fraud on UICCU accounts.
*PIN-based debit transactions should still work even if notification to UICCU was not made.
