How does a Debit Card work?
Using an NVB Debit Card is similar to making purchases with cash or check, only it’s safer and more convenient. When you use your Debit Card, funds are automatically debited from your NVB Checking Account, usually within one to four days. These transactions will appear on your account statement for easy record keeping and budgeting.
Should I choose debit or credit?
When you use your debit card, you may be asked to specify “debit” or “credit”. Regardless of your choice, funds will be automatically deducted from your NVB checking account. Running your card as a “debit” will require you to enter your PIN (Personal Identification Number). Running your card as a “credit” may require you to sign for your purchase.
Where can I use my Debit Card?
Your NVB Debit Card can be used anywhere worldwide that accepts MasterCard debit*. Use your card for purchases in store, online, by phone, or at the gas pump. Access cash by requesting cash back with your purchases in store or at any ATM displaying the MasterCard, Pulse or Exchange symbols.
*Make sure to notify the bank if you are going to be traveling to a different state or country. Fraud prevention tools are in place which could impact your ability to use your card if the bank is not notified prior to your travels.
How is an NVB Debit Card different from a Credit Card?
Debit card purchases and withdrawals are automatically deducted from your NVB checking account. These transactions will show on your account statement and online banking for easy record keeping. It works similarly to using cash or writing a check but is safer and more convenient.
Credit card purchases accumulate on a monthly bill, deferring payment until the bill comes due. If the bill is not paid in full, your balance will be charged interest and added to your card balance. When used responsibly, credit cards are a great way to establish and build your credit. Plus, when using a credit card with rewards, you’ll earn reward points for your purchases that can be redeemed for cash, merchandise, travel, and more!
May I request more than one Debit Card for the same account?
Each account owner or signer is allowed to have one card per account.
Are there any fees for using an NVB Debit Card?
There are no debit card fees for making purchases with your card, getting cash back with a purchase, or when using an NVB ATM. However, fees will be assessed when a card is used at a non-NVB ATM*.
List of NVB Fees:
- $1.50 for withdrawals at a non-NVB ATM
- $1.50 for balance inquiry at a non-NVB ATM
- $1.00 for a denied transaction at a non-NVB ATM
- $7.50 for a replacement card
*Interested in free ATM transactions nationwide? Check out or FREE Reward Checking account!
What is my daily limit?
- PIN and Signature Purchases per calendar day $2,500
- ATM per calendar day $1,000
- PIN/Signature/ATM have a combined daily limit of $2,500
To change a card limit, please call 877-217-4682.

What is Apple Pay and how does it work?
Apple Pay is Apple’s new, innovative payment technology that adds convenience and security to your payment methods. It offers swipe-free payment so your card never leaves your hands. Plus it never reveals your card number to the merchant, whether pay online or in-person.
When your card is added to your device, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored instead of your actual card number. When you make a purchase, instead of using your card number, Apple Pay uses the Device Account Number along with a transaction-specific dynamic security code to process your payment.

EMV Chip Card Technology
What is a chip card?
Chips cards (also known as EMV cards) are credit and debit cards embedded with a microprocessor chip in the front of the card. The chip provides an added layer of security when used in person at a chip-enabled terminal.
Note: The chip technology does not work if you swipe your card’s magnetic strip, provide the cashier with your card number, pay online, or pay by phone.
Do all retailers accept chip cards?
Not all retailers have chip card readers. To ensure you can use your chip card at any retailer, it will continue to have a magnetic stripe on the back of the card. If the retailer is not chip-enabled, you will simply swipe your card using the magnetic stripe.
How do I pay at a chip-enabled terminal?
If you have a chip card, you will insert your card at the top or bottom of the terminal and follow the on-screen prompts.
If you do not have a chip card, you will swipe the magnetic stripe on the back of your card.
Will my Nodaway Valley Bank card use chip technology?
Nodaway Valley Bank credit cards (Visa and American Express) will have chips. If your credit card does not currently have a chip, you will receive a new card upon expiration of your existing card.
Nodaway Valley Bank debit cards (MasterCard) will not have chips at this time because it does not improve the payment process for you, the cardholder. Nor does the chip impact your liability for fraud.
Will the chip prevent fraud?
Chip technology provides an added layer of security that helps reduce the chance of fraud when used in person at a chip-enabled terminal. It does not have an effect on fraud resulting from the card being used online, by phone, or at a terminal that is not chip-enabled.
What happens if I have fraud on my card?
Whether your card is chip enabled or not, you have $0 liability for fraudulent charges made with your Nodaway Valley Bank credit or debit cards when lost or stolen cards are reported promptly.

When do I have to have my debit card and ACH transactions completed?
Our Reward Checking Qualification Calendar shows a monthly list of the cycle end dates for the year. Qualifying debit card purchases* and ACH transactions must post and clear by the night before the qualification cycle ends. Transactions that post on the day the qualification cycle ends will be counted towards the next qualification cycle.
*Qualifying debit card purchases are for purchases only. ATM-processed transactions and refunds do not count towards qualifying debit card purchases.
How are the tiered interest rates calculated?
If all three requirements are met, the first $25,000 earns the highest bonus interest rate, while all balances over that amount earn the lower bonus interest rate. If the requirements are not met, the account functions as a free checking account, earning the base interest rate. The base and bonus rates may change at the bank’s discretion – view our current rates.
How are ATM refunds obtained?
If all three qualifications are met, all transaction surcharge fees within the United States will be automatically refunded up to $25 per statement cycle. ATM transactions made outside the United States will only receive refunds on fees charged by NVB.
Will failing to meet the requirements during one qualification cycle prohibit qualifying for rewards in subsequent months?

Do I have to look at my statement online in order to meet the qualifications?
While the bank encourages you to review your statement, this is not a qualifier for the account.

Yes, as long as you have a valid email address. If you do not have a valid email account, a free email account may be set up through a service provider such as Yahoo or AOL.

May a customer have more than one Reward Checking account?
Yes, there is no limit on how many Reward Checking accounts a customer may open. However, each account has its own set of requirements that must be met to earn the bonus interest rate and ATM refunds. If the 3 qualifications are not met for any account, that particular account will not earn the bonus interest rate or ATM refunds for that qualification cycle.
Beneficial Ownership Certification
Why is my company being asked to sign a Beneficial Ownership Certification Form?
The U.S. government now requires financial institutions to collect and verify specific information from any legal entity (primarily businesses) establishing a new banking relationship. This includes existing customers updating an existing account, opening a new account, renewing a certificate of deposit or initiating or renewing a loan.
These new rules help fight financial crime. Because legal entities can be used to disguise money laundering, terrorist financing, tax evasion, corruption, fraud, and other financial crimes, requiring the disclosure of key individuals who, a) benefit from ownership; and/or b) control a business, helps law enforcement investigate and prosecute these crimes.
All banks are required to collect this information. We appreciate your cooperation.
What is the definition of a 'beneficial owner'?
A beneficial owner is any individual who owns – either directly or indirectly – 25 percent (25%) or more equity interest in a legal entity.
What is the definition of an 'individual with significant management responsibility'?
Also referred to as the individual with control, this is the person with significant responsibility for managing the legal entity. Generally, this individual has the authority to act on behalf of the legal entity and make decisions related to financial relationships. For example, a chief executive officer, chief financial officer, chief operating officer, managing member, general partner, president, vice president, or treasurer. This person’s identity must by verified through a government issued ID or passport.
Is it possible for a person with significant management responsibility to open an account or negotiate loan terms, but not be an authorized signer?
Yes. The legal entity’s documents define who is authorized to open and/or sign on deposit accounts or borrow money on its behalf.
What personal information is required for each named individual on the certification?
We are required to obtain the legal name, physical address, date of birth, and social security number (SSN) for each person listed on the certification. A copy of their government-issued ID, driver’s license or passport is required for verification. Non-U.S. citizens must provide a passport number.
May the bank identify beneficial owners after the account has been opened?
The bank is required to collect information on beneficial owners at the time an account is opened. The account should not be funded or loan proceeds advanced until the signed beneficial certification has been received.
Does the change of authorized signers trigger collection of beneficial ownership certification for existing customers?
The bank is also required to update this information for a legal entity when a “significant event” occurs, such as a change in ownership or an individual that has significant management responsibility, i.e., an executive officer or senior manager including Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Managing Member, General Partner, President, Vice President or Treasurer requiring a change of authorized signers. Please advise us of any change in ownership or control so we may update our records.
Who should complete the certification form on behalf of the entity?
The individual with authority to request an account be opened or a loan be granted is the person to complete the certification. This could also be the person named as the individual with significant management responsibility, or someone who has been designated by that individual to establish bank relationships on behalf of the legal entity. The person who completes the form will sign it certifying the information is accurate to the best of his or her knowledge.
What if my company is owned by another legal entity?
Indirect ownership means the legal entity may be owned by one or more legal entities. We are required to obtain information on the individuals behind these layered entities who have 25 percent or more ownership in the legal entity. The bank is required to “drill down” to a natural person.
Is certification required when no individuals have 25 percent or more ownership?
Yes. You would simply mark the box indicating there are no individuals with beneficial ownership and complete the control section for the individual with significant management responsibility.
Are there any exceptions to the beneficial ownership rule?
There are limited exceptions to the collection of beneficial ownership information. It is not required of government agencies, publicly traded companies, sole proprietorships, or unincorporated associations (i.e., youth sports leagues, Scout troops, after- prom parent groups, bowling teams, etc.)
What is required for non-profit corporation or association?
The bank must determine whether the organization applying to open the account is a state chartered legal entity. Non-profit corporations or similar entities, including non-government organizations (NGO’s), charities and religious organizations (whether or not tax-exempt) are exempt from the beneficial ownership portion of the requirement, requiring only the information on the individual with significant responsibility to control, manage, or direct the entity be obtained, along with verification of their identity, i.e. a driver’s license or government issued ID. In most cases, the individual is also an authorized signer on the account.
Are accounts designated “doing business as” (DBA) exempt?
The bank must know the name of the underlying legal entity of any business that uses another name in public. For example, if a restaurant goes by the name “Taco-Taco,” but the legal owner is “Serious Brands, Inc.”, the bank must obtain beneficial ownership information on Serious Brands, Inc. as the legal entity.
Are trusts exempt?
Generally, personal trusts are exempt from these rules since they are created without a public filing. However, any trust created by the filing of a public document with the appropriate state office, such as statutory trusts or business trusts which are similar to corporations, are subject to these requirements.
How are Interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts (IOLTA accounts) treated for purposes of the beneficial ownership rule?
Under most state laws, an IOLTA is considered a non-statutory trust account. The bank must obtain certification of the individual with significant management responsibility and verify their identity, i.e. obtain government issued ID or driver’s license.
What will the bank do with this information?
We are required to maintain this information as part of the records associated with the legal entity. It is treated with the highest level of confidentiality and security as all other customer information.
