  • Many merchants offer cash back when you use your ATM/Debit MasterCard, so when you make a purchase and select cash back, you can get money without paying an ATM or other fee.
  • The money comes from your checking account, so there's no debt, monthly bills or finance charges. Each transaction, with the amount, merchant location and date, is detailed on your monthly statement.
  • You can use the card to get cash, up to the balance in your checking account. If you are traveling, go to any financial institution that offers MasterCard and get a cash advance at the teller window.
  • If your card is lost or stolen and you immediately report it, your maximum liability is $50. During business hours, call our Information Center at 517.545.2238 or 517.546.3150. After hours, call the 24-hour hotline at 866.546.8273.
