For 60 years, Virginia Beach Schools Federal Credit Union has served members and brought value by offering convenience and access to financial products and services. We have been proud to help members achieve their financial goals.
On behalf of the Board of Directors and Leadership Team, I am excited to announce our plans to merge with Langley Federal Credit Union. Merging with Langley will allow us to continue acting in the best interest of our members by providing more access, more value, and more rewards to members and the community.
This merger represents a partnership between two credit unions that share values, plus a real commitment to our members and the communities we serve. As the financial services landscape continues to evolve, merging with Langley allows us to immediately enhance what we can offer members. This includes access to more branch locations, more products and services at competitive rates, and enhanced technology offerings that will provide greater 24/7 convenience.
We are excited to share we have received approval from our regulators. What happens next? Virginia Beach Schools FCU members will be sent the official Notice of Meeting and ballot on August 31, 2021, and will have the opportunity to vote until the day of the special meeting which is scheduled for October 19, 2021.

EMV cards contain an embedded computer chip and are already in use in much of the rest of the world. Now they’re becoming the standard in the U.S.
Enhanced Security For Your Debit And Credit Cards
Chip Cards Are Easy To Use
Information programmed into your chip card will be personalized for your account and every in-person transaction is unique, adding a strong additional safeguard against fraud
When used at a chip-enabled terminal at the point of sale or an ATM, a small computer chip embedded in the card adds a new layer of protection against unauthorized use and counterfeiting. Information programmed into the chip is personalized for your account and each transaction generates a unique code that can’t be used again.
If a merchant isn’t using a chip-enabled terminal yet … you will ‘swipe’ your card to make your purchase, just as you do today. Chip cards will continue to have the magnetic stripe on the back, allowing them to work in non-chip terminals.
Making purchases online or by phone doesn’t change … just provide your card information as you have done in the past.
At an ATM
A PIN is needed for ATM transactions.
There are high numbers of fraud charges occurring on debit/credit cards around the area. To help protect yourself, it is important to understand how your information can get into the wrong hands. Aside from merchant data breaches, ATM skimming is another way your information can be stolen. Remember, this is not limited to only ATMs but any device that has a card swipe feature (typically unattended machines, such as gas stations). To learn more about ATM skimming, click here
Lost, stolen or victim of Fraud
It’s Saturday night, and you lose your debit card! What do you do? Log into your mobile app and “Disable” your card! If you find it, GREAT! Just log back into the mobile app and “Activate” it! What if you can’t find it? Log in to your mobile app, and change the status to “Lost” or “Stolen” and your card will immediately be closed. Come by during business hours to pick up a new card. There is a charge for the new card – so make sure you truly can’t find it before you select “Lost” or “Stolen”. How does it work?

Traveling is so exciting and we are thrilled you are exploring the world! Before traveling it is important to have a plan when it comes to spending money abroad. Due to high activities of fraud, your card may not work in foreign countries unless you contact us first. It’s always a good idea to learn if there are any country restrictions on any card you plan to use and make sure to have a backup or alternative form of payment.
Please contact Card Member Services at 1-800-558-3424 when traveling abroad.
