Frequently Asked Questions

How does my debit card work?

You can use your debit card just like an ATM card at an ATM, which means you will need to enter a PIN (Personal Identification Number).

You can also use your debit card at stores the same way you use a credit card. The difference is when you use a credit card, you're borrowing money and potentially incurring a finance charge. When you use your North Shore Bank debit card, you're using money already in your checking account. It’s like writing a check, but without the paper. You can even use your debit card to order items over the phone and online. To keep an accurate record of your account balance, record your debit card transactions in your checkbook immediately.

For security purposes, never give your PIN to anyone.
