KEMBA Interactive Teller logo

An Interactive Teller Machine is a new way of banking! During business hours, you will have the option to be face-to-face with a live person via video, or choose a self-service option which allow you to conduct transactions without assistance. Our ITMs will be called KEMBA Interactive Tellers, or KITs for short.
Simply touch the screen to begin. You can choose to be connected to a Video Teller or use ATM functionality. When choosing to be connected to a Video Teller you will be asked to scan your ID for identification purposes.
Tellers will move to centralized locations but will remain the same dedicated individuals you have been accustomed to seeing at your branch.
This new technology enables a more streamlined approach to conducting your banking business with tellers and may reduce your wait time. Plus, you will have access to more services after hours, including making cash and check deposits.
You can use the machine for all of your traditional teller transactions, such as: to deposit checks and cash, perform a withdrawal, transfer funds, make payments, inquire on service items, and speak to a teller during business hours. Plus, each machine has traditional ATM capabilities.
Yes. All branches will remain open and staffed with associates ready to assist you.
No. The KITs do not accept coins. However, the coin machines will still be available in the branch lobbies.
No; however, checks can be printed off in our lobbies by our Concierge or a Member Service Representative.
Yes. You will have the option to securely chat with our Video Tellers via an on-screen text-like option.
No. We expect your wait time to be shorter as this is a more efficient method of conducting transactions.
No. We are happy to share that all of our tellers will remain with us, but at one of two centralized locations.
Unfortunately, no. We assure you that you will find the same dedicated individuals serving you just as they would in-person at the branches.
All KEMBA branches now have KITs in the drive-thrus. Each branch lobby will begin to see the machines added at different times. We will notify you via email, so you know when to expect the change.
KITs allow us to serve you on your schedule, while providing safe, secure transactions. Flexibility is offered to you as you have a choice in support from our tellers during business hours and 24/7 ATM access to conduct various types of transactions.
When you’re ready, simply touch the screen to be connected directly to one of our interactive tellers. You’ll be asked to scan your ID for identification and we will proceed with your transaction.
As a business member, you too gain access to conduct your banking business with tellers and may reduce the wait time. Plus, you will have access to more services after hours, including making cash and check deposits.
Yes. While meeting with the KIT teller, you can make this request. We have $100, $20, $5, and $1 bills available. You are also able to select your own bill denominations when using the ATM function of the machine. Simply enter the amount of your withdrawal, select “SET BILL MIX,” choose which bills you’d like to receive back and then select “CONFIRM.”
Yes, when banking with a KIT, your transactions are as secure as if you were doing a face to face teller transaction in one of our branches. Just like in a branch we may require an ID for identification purposes and for security purposes all transactions are recorded.

Chip cards are a new feature that offers you added security keeping your identity and accounts safe from fraud. If you have any additional questions about our upgrade to EMV credit and Debit Cards, please give us a call at 614.235.2395 or 800.282.6420, option 4. A KEMBA representative will be happy to assist you.
EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard®, and Visa®. It is a Credit or Debit card that’s embedded with a microchip. We simply call this your chip card.
A chip card has a micro-chip embedded into the card adding an extra layer of security to your card transactions. The chip stores the same information as the magnetic stripe found on the back of your credit or Debit Cards; however, the chip encrypts your transaction data with a unique code every time you use your card to keep your identity and personal information much more secure.
If a card has chip technology, you will see a small metal square on the front left of the card above the account number.
Many financial institutions and retailers use different terminology for chip cards, but there is really no difference. These are simply different names used to reference the same technology.
It does not track or store your purchase history or provide location assistance if your card is lost or stolen. It is only for adding an additional layer of fraud protection to your card. The chip codes certain parts of your transactions when used at participating retailers.
The chip and PIN and chip and signature cards offer enhanced security to protect your card against fraudulent activity. The only difference is the chip and PIN card requires you to enter a PIN to complete the transaction. Your KEMBA Credit and Debit Card will function the same as it does today requiring you to press ‘credit’ and provide a signature, when requested, or enter your PIN to complete your transaction.
At KEMBA, your security is our top priority.  The benefits of chip card technology is that it offers additional security to protect you, our member, against fraud making it more difficult for unauthorized users to copy or access your card information. Plus, we are always searching for new ways to enhance our members’ experience with the most recent technology while giving you peace of mind.
No. The current fees remain the same on your chip card as they do today. We want to make sure cardholders have the benefit of this added card security and greater global acceptance without any additional fees.
We began introducing chip credit cards in 2015 and plan to offer chip Debit Cards throughout 2016, starting with issuing renewal cards monthly.
It’s easy. When making a purchase at a retailer with a chip-enabled register, simply insert your chip card into the terminal slot (often referred to as ‘card dipping’) and follow the prompts on the screen. You will still authorize the transaction by signing your name. If the retailer doesn’t have chip-enabled registers, swipe the card and sign your name as you do today. When in doubt, follow the prompts at the register if you are not sure whether you should swipe or insert your card. There are no changes to phone or online transactions.
Your chip card will still have a magnetic stripe on the back for those retailers you shop that don’t have chip reader terminals at the checkout. So, it all depends on whether the retailer has a chip reader-enabled terminal or a magnetic stripe terminal. Simply follow the terminal prompts to guide you through the transaction.
Just like you do today. You will continue to use the same procedures when making a purchase over the phone or online with your new chip card.
If you have a credit card, for additional security you will receive a new card number. This will also eliminate the need to replace all credit cards on the account if a primary, joint, or authorized signer card is lost or stolen. Debit Card numbers will remain the same unless you request a replacement due to a lost, stolen, or compromised card . As a result, you will need to update your card information (your card number, expiration date, and 3-digit CVV security code) where it is stored for recurring payments.
Yes, your expiration date will change, so you may need to update your card information where it is stored for recurring payments, such as online bills and subscriptions. Please check to ensure you do not miss a payment.
Chip technology is already widespread outside of the United States, with it being more common in Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and some European countries. The U.S. is preparing for the introduction of chip reader-enabled terminals at retailers across nationwide over the next few years.

For your security, we will deactivate the old card after we have given you plenty of time to activate your new chip card. Keep in mind, the chip card still has the magnetic stripe on the back of your card so you can continue to use the card as you do today at the stores you shop that don’t have a chip enabled register.

Every time you use your card at a chip terminal, the embedded chip generates a unique transaction code. This prevents any stolen data from being fraudulently used.
Yes, you can; however, you’ll need to update your card number, expiration date, and 3-digit CVV security code with any retailers who currently bill your account automatically once your new card arrives and is activated. Plus, you can still monitor and manage your account anytime with KEMBA’s Digital Banking. Or call us at the phone number on the back of your card.
