An ATM card requires no activation. Please use the PIN number assigned to you to use the card. One way to tell if you have an ATM card is to look at the back of your card. If there is a 3-digit Card Verification Code (CVC), you have an ATM/Debit card which requires activation.
An ATM/Debit card requires activation. There are 3 ways to activate your ATM/Debit Card. Please visit your nearest Union Bank ® ATM machine with the PIN number that was assigned to you and follow prompts for activation. Another way to activate is to call the toll-free number on the back of your ATM/Debit card and follow the prompts. When you call, make sure to have your ATM/Debit card and look at the back of your card as it will ask for your 16-digit card number, expiration date and 3-digit Card Verification Code (CVC). If you are already signed up for Online Banking, you can activate the card by clicking here
