What is a debit card?

A Personal Identification Number (or PIN) is a numeric code used to add an extra layer of security to your checking accounts and debit card transactions. You may be asked to enter your PIN when accessing an ATM or swiping your debit card at a place of business.

How do I select a PIN for my debit card?

Just as you would with alphanumeric passwords, it is important to choose an account PIN that cannot easily be guessed. Since PINs are a 4-digit number, one of the most common mistakes people make is to choose a significant event - such as a birthday or anniversary - as the PIN for your debit card. Choose a non-sequential series of numbers you will be able to remember in the future and be sure to obscure the keypad when entering your PIN in public locations. You will first select your PIN number for your debit card when you call in to activate a new card.  

How do I reset my Amplify PIN?

Members who live in the greater Austin metro can reset their PIN at any Amplify Credit Union branch. You may also call our automated system (800) 992-3808 or utilize the Amplify Mobile Card Control app. Please note that you will be asked for identifying card and member information before your new PIN can be activated.

How do I activate my new debit card?

Whether you are new to Amplify and just received a debit card, or if you were assigned a new debit card because your previous card was lost or stolen, you will activate the card by calling us at (800) 992-3808. During the activation process, you will be prompted to select a new PIN number.
