Rhinebeck Bank recently issued new MasterCard® Debit cards with new “Chip” technology. These cards are also referred to as EMV Cards, for the original developers Europay, MasterCard® & Visa®.
EMV began to be used extensively in Europe in the early 1990s. In 2011 the leading payment networks in the U.

The first Automated Teller Machine (“ATM”) in the U.S. opened in New York City on September 2, 1969.This original ATM was designed to dispense cash when a valid plastic card was used.

Have you ever received a phone call and wondered if it might be fraud? For instance, someone claiming to be a representative with Microsoft saying your computer has viruses? Or maybe, a call from the IRS saying you owe them money and if you don’t pay you will be arrested? Have you recently received an email or letter saying that you are the lucky winner of a lottery?
Over the course of any given month there are dozens of transactions going in and out of your checking account: direct deposits posting from your employer, your mortgage or rent, utility bills, car loans, insurance and other payments are withdrawn. There are also groceries to buy, dinners out, a gas tank to fill and perhaps a trip to the movies or shopping online.

I am often asked, why should I bank at Rhinebeck Bank?
Upon reflection, I have distilled my response to a few key points:
Whether you are a high school student looking for your first job or a seasoned professional looking to make a job change, you should remember your career path is up to YOU. Many candidates take a position because it was offered. Just because a position is offered to you does not mean you have to take it. Ask yourself these questions:
Maybe you are interviewing because you just graduated from college. Maybe you are interviewing because you want a career change. Maybe you are interviewing because you were recently laid off. Whatever your reason, interviewing for a job can be stressful. You can help calm your nerves with the motto “Be Prepared”.
