Members 1st Federal Credit Union Makes Enhancements with Contactless Payment Technology

Members 1st Federal Credit Union is excited to share significant changes to its debit card program. The credit union is taking its members’ experience a step further by offering contactless technology. This new contactless payment feature will provide members with more safety, security and convenience when making purchases.

Members 1st FCU’s new contactless debit cards with a redesigned look and enhanced technology.

Contactless payment is an enhanced technology feature in which you do not have to insert or swipe a card. When merchants have this technology enabled, card users will simply be able to “tap and go.” The cards are still able to be swiped or inserted if needed. Overall, it is a much more secure and faster member experience, all while continuing to protect personal information.

“Multiple layers of security are at work behind the scenes with every transaction to include a one-time use cryptographic code,” says Chief Marketing Officer/Chief Relationship Officer Mike Wilson. “This reduces risk of card-skimming you often hear about in the news.”

Members at the credit union will also see that these new debit cards will have a redesigned look. This new look is a part of many other exciting changes coming soon. As Members 1st continues to reinvest in technology, the intent is to deliver enhanced services that will fully personalize members’ banking experiences as a part of a digital evolution. The reveal of an enhanced mobile app and website, complete with a redesigned look that is similar to the new debit cards and significantly improved functionality, will be unveiled soon.

Members 1st FCU serves nearly half a million members through its network of almost 60 branch locations throughout Central Pennsylvania, as well as its robust digital banking and call center channels. To learn more about Members 1st, visit or call (800) 283-2328.
