What is the difference between an Express & Scheduled Transfer?
After submitting an Express Transfer, it will show immediately on your online banking and is a ONE TIME transfer.
A Scheduled Transfer can be scheduled in advance and can be recurring. This type of transfer will not show on your online banking until after the system updates at night. For example, if you create a scheduled transfer for Tuesday, it will not show on your online banking until late Tuesday night and will post for Tuesday’s business.
Both types of transfers must be submitted by 3:00pm CST for it to be processed on the same business day. Transfer submitted after 3:00pm CST will be posted on the next business day (or on the scheduled transfer date if it is a future-dated transfer).

Do I need to notify FSB that my Debit Card is about to expire?
No. A new debit card will be automatically ordered at the beginning of the expiration month. It will be sent through the mail and should be received before the month’s end. Your card will be valid through the end of the expiration month. It is important to watch your mail closely during the expiration month – your new card will be mailed in a generic envelope that does not list the bank’s name and may be confused with junk mail.
If you have not received your new card by the end of the expiration month, please notify one of our Customer Service Representatives at your local FSB branch.
How do I select a new PIN for my Debit Card?
You can select your own PIN by calling 1-800-472-3272, choose option #1 (Card Activation). You will need to have your debit card number, security code, expiration date, and the last four digits of the cardholder’s SSN ready for verification. You will then be prompted to choose a new PIN.

If you do not receive your new card by the end of the expiration month, please notify the bank. It takes approximately 7-10 days for your new card to arrive once it is ordered. When expecting a new card, watch your mail very closely, your card will arrive in a generic looking envelope that does not list the bank’s name and may be confused with junk mail.
How does a Debit Card work?

Your FSB 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.

Does FSB have a Debit Card monitoring tool?
Yes. FSB offers CardValet, a free mobile app that helps you monitor when, where, and how your card is used. Through the app, CardValet allows you to temporarily “turn off” your debit card if it has been lost or stolen. When CardValet has turned off the card, no purchases or ATM withdrawals can be made, although automatic deposits and bill payments remain active. If your debit card is found, you can simply turn your card back on.
Some Card Valet users treat the function as a default security feature, keeping their debit card turned off until they are ready to use it, and then returning the setting to "off" after making a purchase.
EMV Chip Card Technology
What is a chip card?
Chips cards (also known as EMV cards) are 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 bank of the card. If the retailer is not-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.
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?
Immediately contact a Farmers State Bank Customer Service Representative to discuss the transactions.
