Important Information for Using Your TLC Visa® Card
Credit & Debit Card Expiration Dates
Your card will come with an expiration date that can affect usage, specifically when it comes to automatic payments:
- TLC credit and debit cards expire at the end of the month stated on your card
- Some auto-pay merchants assume the card expires the 1st of the month and will send an alert to you telling you the card has expired. (This happens before they even attempt to charge your card.)
- TLC replacement cards arrive around the middle of the month they expire
- For security reasons replacement DEBIT and CREDIT cards come in unmarked envelopes. The envelope itself has no writing on it. The return address is PO Box 1516 which is TLC's lock box. Be on the lookout for these envelopes the month your card expires.
Benefits of Choosing “Credit” Instead of “Debit”
When using your debit card you are asked to choose between “debit” and “credit”. Whichever option you choose, when you use your TLC debit card it will come out of your checking account immediately. Keep these important differences in mind:
Using your debit card as a credit and signing for authorization gives you added safety and protection. That protection comes from Visa® which provides zero liability for fraud.
TLC strongly recommends that you choose “credit” and sign for all transactions rather than using “debit”.
Using “debit” when making any transaction with your debit card opens yourself up to liability if your card is stolen and used without your authorization.
Planning a Trip?
Your card includes protection from suspicious activity. If you’re planning to take a trip outside of Michigan with your Visa® card, notify us first! We’ll let Visa® know so that you don’t experience any issues while you’re enjoying your vacation. This is just another way TLC is looking out for you!
