New EMV/Chip Card
Enhanced security with chip debit card
by Sarah Cousineau
We are happy to introduce a new debit card for our customers. The new Central Bank of Kansas City debit card now includes the EMV/ chip technology. This chip card – also called a smart card or an EMV card – is a debit card that contains a microprocessor that enhances the security of cards during point of sale transactions. Chip cards use a security standard originally developed by Europay, MasterCard and Visa (EMV) as a way to fight card fraud resulting from theft, skimming and counterfeiting.

"These new and improved cards are going to improve payment security, making it more difficult for card fraud,” says Bill Dana, president and CEO of Central Bank of Kansas City. "It's an important step forward in safeguarding our debit card and related account balances for our customers."
