Credit or Debit Card International Use Restricted
To protect our members and the Credit Union from credit and debit card fraud CorePlus has implemented additional RESTRICTIONS* on the international use of credit and debit cards issued by CorePlus. Please notify CorePlus that you’re travelling outside the United States or your Credit Union VISA credit card and/or MasterCard debit card transactions could be denied while trying to make purchases in a foreign country. To notify us before travelling, call our Member Call Center at 860-886-0576, at least one week before departure and provide us with the dates and destinations. By notifying the Credit Union in advance, we may be able to take steps to avoid your credit and/or debit card from being blocked against purchase transactions during your trip to certain restricted countries.
CorePlus Credit Union has BLOCKED* the use of our VISA credit and/or MasterCard debit card in the following countries due to the high incidence of fraud in these areas: All African nations, Eastern Europe, Burma (Myanmar), Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Mexico, North Korea, Philippines, Russia, Spain.
Your CorePlus cards WILL NOT work in these blocked countries, under any circumstances. ASK US about purchasing a convenient, safe Travelex pre-paid international debit card (with a mobile app!) or purchasing foreign currency before you travel. Click Here for Travelex Info.
* Restrictions may change to meet emerging threats and fraud activity without prior notice.
