  • Make purchases or pay personal expenses in person, by phone or Internet. 
  • View your check card transactions in real time using Jefferson Online Banking.
  • Use as an ATM card when you need cash.
    • ATM withdrawals require your Personal Identification Number (PIN).
  • Sign up for VISA Check Card Alerts for live updates on your everyday purchases.

Include Us in Your Travel Arrangements

If you plan on traveling outside of the country, remember to notify the Jefferson Bank Card Services Department at (210) 734-4311. We ask that you let us know the time frame and your destination. By doing so, we will have knowledge that international transactions3 should be expected on your account, and our systems will allow these transactions to take place. It's always wise to be prepared with additional forms of payment in the event that foreign ATM networks are not accessible with your card.

3Jefferson Bank charges an International Transaction Service Fee, which is 1% of the transaction amount for each international purchase made. Other international transaction fees may apply.

  • Contact the Card Services Department at (210) 734-4311 during banking hours
