IBM Southeast Employees’ Federal Credit Union launches Apple Pay

Credit Union Offers Members a New, Secure Way to Pay

DELRAY BEACH, FL (March 25, 2015) — IBM Southeast Employees’ Federal Credit Union is excited to announce that they now offer Apple Pay, the easy, secure, and private way to pay. Members can now use Apple Pay with their iPhone 6 and other approved Apple devices to make payments at participating Apple Pay merchants.  Apple Pay allows for a more secure method of making transactions where credit and debit card numbers are never shared with the merchant.

The almost $900 million IBM Southeast EFCU encourages Members to forget their wallet. Apple Pay is changing how Members pay with their revolutionary contactless payment technology and security features. Using Apple Pay is secure:
Member’s account or card numbers are never stored on Apple’s® server and merchants won’t see card numbers, contact info, or security codes.

If their iPhone is lost or stolen, they can use Apple’s® Find My iPhone feature to put their device into Lost Mode to suspend Apple Pay.

All IBM Southeast EFCU Visa® credit cards come with Visa’s Zero Liability Policy which provides an additional layer of protection if fraud occurs.

Getting Started is Easy:

  • Members should make sure their iPhone 6, iPad Air 2 or iPad Mini 3 has the latest iOS 8 version on it
  • They add their IBM Southeast EFCU credit or debit card to Apple Pay
  • Members can then begin paying securely with a single touch

Nicole Heffelfinger, Vice President of Operations at IBM Southeast EFCU, stated that offering Apple Pay is just one more way we can make our Member’s lives easier. “We’re so excited to be able to offer our Members this easy, secure way to pay starting today.  Our Members are on the go and live mobile lives. This new, service will save everyone time while shopping.”
