Instant Issue Mastercard® Debit Card
Rondout Savings Bank offers instant card issuance that provides our clients with new Mastercard® debit cards in minutes, in all branch locations. With Rondout’s debit card you have access to more than 35,000 ATMS nationwide – surcharge free!
This feature lets you take control of your Rondout Savings Bank Mastercard® Debit Card and protect against unauthorized use. If you have misplaced your card, turn it to the OFF position. If you find it, and feel your account has not been jeopardized, turn it back to ON and continue to use your card.
Turning your card OFF only impacts future debit card (point of sale and ATM) transactions. Any previously authorized transactions will be paid, and any recurring transactions you had previously set up will still occur. Turning your card OFF will not affect your checks, mobile or internet transfers, bill payments, or any other type of transactions in your account(s).
If you use your card infrequently, or are traveling without your card, turn it OFF. Then turn it on when you are ready to use. You are in control. Your mobile application shows you whether you card is ON or OFF.
To report loss or theft of your Mastercard® Debit Card please contact anyone of our branch locations at 1 (844) 890-6189.

Positive Pay is an anti-fraud tool that detects and prevents fraudulent check transactions. Through Positive Pay you can submit your business check register through Online Banking. Positive Pay matches the account number, check number and dollar amount to each check that is presented for payment.
Each day, checks will be marked as an “Exception Item” if the check:
- Is not listed in the check register that was submitted.
- Is a duplicate of a previously paid item
- The check has a Stop Payment in place
- The check is listed as Voided within the check register
- Has a different dollar amount than what is listed in the check register
- Does not have a check number or does not match what is listed in the check register.
Checks that are listed as an “Exception Item” can be viewed by the customer to determine if the check is fraudulent. After viewing the check, the customer can decide to pay or return the item.
- Any business that writes a large volume of checks
- A business that has previously experienced fraudulent check activity
- It’s convenient! Simply log on to Online Banking daily to review any exceptions.
- Have more control over your account. If a fraudulent or altered check ends up in the exception file, return it!
