Our debit card is safer than carrying cash and more readily accepted than checks. But if you prefer not to pay with plastic, that’s okay too. Our ATM card helps you keep cash close at hand — all across the country.

In accordance with VISA rules and regulations, effective in October 2017, First Citizens National Bank cardholders will be automatically enrolled in the VISA Account Updater (VAU) service. VAU helps facilitate uninterrupted processing of your recurring payments through a secure electronic exchange of account information updates between participating Visa Card issuers, acquirers and merchants.
When new cards are issued due to account information changes such as card expiration, for example, the new account information is sent to VAU for cards scheduled with recurring payments to participating merchants. Participating merchants can send inquiries to VAU about their account-on-file transactions and are provided with updated card information, if available. This helps participating issuers retain cardholders by maintaining continuity of their payment relationships with participating merchants.
Cardholder Benefits of VAU
Note: Merchant participation is optional, and some merchants may choose not to use this service. Participation in VAU does not relieve you of your obligation to confirm merchants have correct account information on file for you. Neither VISA nor First Citizens National Bank can guarantee the account updates will be communicated to merchants prior to the next billing date.
Account Opt-Out Procedures
If despite the benefits of VAU you wish to opt out of this service, please fill out this form.

How it Works
With digital wallet services, your actual debit card numbers are never transmitted or shared with merchants. Payment is private — the cashier never sees your name, card numbers, or security code.
Instead of using your actual card numbers for purchases, a unique “device account number” is assigned, encrypted, and securely stored. When you make a purchase, the device account number, along with a transaction-specific security code is used to process your payment.
