Getting Started with The County Federal Credit Union debit card & Apple Pay
To add The County Federal Credit Union Visa® debit card, you’ll need an Apple Pay-supported device with iOS 8.1 or newer operating system.

If your CFCU debit card is already registered with iTunes®, just key in your security code (the three-digit CW number on the back). Otherwise, you will be asked to hold your phone over your card to scan your card or you may choose to enter your information manually.
- If you have an iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3, go to Settings, select Passbook, then choose Apple Pay. If your CFCU debit card is already loaded on iTunes® just key in your security code (the three-digit CW number on the back).

Remember, the default image may be different from your personalized debit card.
IMPORTANT: During the setup process you will be asked to call 1-844-646-5465 and provide specific information about your account along with recent transaction information for Verification.
