Frequently Asked Questions

 

Why am I receiving a card with Dow Chemical Employees' Credit Union on it instead of the new name, Dow Credit Union?

We will replace cards with the new name and branding once we deplete our existing card stock. Once activated, this card will be functional, regardless of the name, until its expiration date.

 

Why haven't I received a new, contactless card? 

Cards are arriving later than expected due to shipping delays. 

 

If you have not received your new contactless card by 02/01/2023, please send a message in online banking or call 1.800.835.7794.

 

Why did I receive a separate mailer with a PIN? 

 

PINs were mailed out separately from the new contactless cards for security reasons. No further action is needed if you activated your card before the PIN arrived.
