Introducing the new Bank of Marin Visa® Debit Cards
- Our new chip-enabled debit cards are the latest in fraud protection technology.
- When used at any chip-activated terminal, the embedded chip generates a one-time use code. This code makes it difficult to counterfeit and helps reduce in-store fraud.
- Globally accepted; you can pay wherever Visa Debit Cards are accepted.
- To obtain a Bank of Marin Visa Debit Card, please contact your local branch.

Q: What is a chip card?
A: Bank of Marin Visa Debit Cards now feature built-in chip technology. You’ll enjoy global acceptance plus an enhanced level of security.
Q: Will my card number change?
A: No. Your account or card numbers will not change as a result of the new cards unless your card was stolen, lost or compromised.
Q: How does chip technology protect my information?
A: Whenever you use your card at a chip-activated terminal, the embedded chip generates a one-time use code. This code makes it difficult to counterfeit and helps reduce in-store fraud.
Q: Where can I use a chip card?
A: You can use your card at millions of places that accept Visa Debit Cards, at home and around the world.
Q: Can I swipe my chip card to pay?
A: Yes. If a merchant is not yet chip-activated, you can continue to swipe your card and enter your PIN. Or select CREDIT and sign for your purchase, if necessary.
Q: Can I use my debit chip card at the ATM?
A: Yes. You can still use your card to get cash, check your balance and more. Simply insert the chip end of your card with the chip facing up. Your card will remain in the ATM until your transaction is complete.
