  • No monthly maintenance fee
  • No minimum balance requirement
  • No transaction limit

Easy Access and Top Security

Your Visa Debit Card is linked to your Global Credit Union checking account, and gives you 24/7 access to your savings, money market, consumer loan, or credit line at an ATM.

Your Visa Debit Card includes built-in security features.

  • Visa's Zero Liability Policy protects you from unauthorized charges if your card is stolen.
  • Easily turn on or off your debit card with the Global app.
