  9. My debit card is getting declined and I have money in my account. Why isn’t it working?

    1. This can happen for a number of reasons. Please check the following list for possible solutions:
      1. Are you trying to make debit purchases or ATM withdrawals in excess of $400 for the day? For your account security, we only permit PIN-based debit transactions, including ATM withdrawals, of $400 per day. We recommend trying the transaction as a “credit” purchase.
         
      2. Are you trying to make a purchase at a vendor located outside of the US? Due to increasing instances of fraudulent transactions occurring from outside of the US, our system will automatically block these transactions. Contact us at (614) 487-6650 to request a temporary exemption and verify your card has not been temporarily blocked due to a potentially fraudulent transaction.
         
      3. Are you using the correct PIN? If you suspect your PIN may be the culprit, try resetting it by calling (800) 992-3808 and change the PIN to what you think it should be.
         
      4. Have you recently purchased gas or a hotel room using the card? Hotels, gas stations, and select other vendors may place a hold on your account when you use your debit card. If this is the case, you’ll need to request the vendor remove the hold on your funds or wait for it to drop off. We cannot remove a hold without the vendor’s written statement.
         
    2. If none of the above list apply, the card may be blocked for various reasons. Please contact us at (614) 487-6650 for further assistance.
