For the Payroll Debit Card, it will be distributed through the HR Department of the company. Non-EMV cards of BDO Payroll Account clients will be deactivated on March 1.

For those using the Asenso Kabayan Debit Card, this has still not been changed to an EMV Debit Card, but customers may voluntarily request for card replacement to EMV from their branch of account even prior to the bank’s migration schedule.

All Kabayan Savings accountholders may get the free replacement EMV card in any BDO branch until March 31, 2018.

What are the requirements to get the EMV ATM Card?

Just bring one (1) valid ID for identification purposes.

Yes, the EMV card that will replace the old, magstripe non-EMV card is free of charge.

However, succeeding card requests due to lost or damaged card will be charged P150.00 replacement fee.

What should I do with my old BDO ATM Card?

Cut your old ATM card, especially the magstripe portion, to prevent other people from using it. Dispose the card once you have your replacement EMV Debit card. Your old magnetic stripe card will be deactivated upon issuance of your EMV Debit Card.

Can I pick up my EMV card in any branch?

For security reasons, BDO requires clients to claim their EMV Debit card at their Branch of Account.

For those outside Metro Manila, if their branch of account is in the province, they may request their branch of account to send the EMV card to a BDO Manila branch that they prefer. Clients will be required to submit a signed letter of authorization to send the card to the preferred servicing branch.

Can I send a proxy to pick up my EMV ATM Card?

BDO suggest that clients personally pick up the EMV card. However, if they are unable to claim it, they may send an authorized representative from their immediate family to claim the EMV Debit card.

Pickup of EMV card through a representative is limited to the branch of account and requires submission of bank standard authorization letter which may be secured from any BDO branch together with the account holder’s ID and ID of the representative.
