Target Stores Data Breach
Update: December 20, 2013
Based on what we have learned about the nature of the information obtained by the Target breach, we have decided to take additional precaution against fraud on affected accounts by issuing new debit cards to members who shopped at Target between November 27 and December 15. We are taking this proactive step in protecting affected accounts because our members' account security is our highest priority.
We have sent affected members detailed information about receiving their new debit cards. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Target breach, please do not hesitate to contact us at 1-800-464-0253 or through Communications Center in online banking.
