Colleagues pay for a business expense with a Business MasterMoney® Debit Card

Business MasterMoney® Debit Card

Improve cash flow management and streamline purchasing.


Use First Northern Bank and Trust’s Business MasterMoney® Debit Card online or at any brick and mortar store that accepts Mastercard®. With embedded microchip technology that makes it difficult for anyone to copy or counterfeit your data, it’s safer than cash and less hassle than cutting a check. When a transaction is complete, funds are automatically deducted from your company’s Checking Account.

If your organization or one of your employees needs access to immediate cash, the card is accepted at more than 600,000 ATMs in 100+ countries.

  • Issue cards to multiple team members.
  • Assign access permissions to make POS purchases.
  • Use spending limits to control costs.
  • Eliminate check printing fees.
  • See additional details

When shopping at a store without a chip-enabled terminal, simply swipe the card as usual. If chip cards are accepted, follow these steps:

  1. Hold your card horizontally, gripping the bottom edge, and insert it, right reading, into the terminal opening.
  2. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the transaction. Prompts could include requests for a PIN, an electronic signature, or a signature on a printed receipt.
  3. Remove the card when prompted.

When you use your Business MasterMoney® Debit Card, it immediately affects the available balance in your account. With our real-time system, you’ll always know exactly how much money is available, plus enjoy faster transactions! This excludes Point of Sale Signature Transactions, in which the full amount isn’t withdrawn until 1-3 days later.

Pending transactions are always visible via Business Online Banking. They’ll immediately appear in your account history, but without a letter code beside them (ED, AW, etc.). Some transactions will display a different amount when they settle, and any deposits placed on hold will not be available until that hold has expired.

A PIN Transaction occurs when you use your card and enter your PIN. A Signature Transaction doesn’t need a PIN for a card swipe, when you’re giving your card number over the telephone, or using the card on the internet.

Some Signature Transactions will place an initial charge (also called a pledge) on your card that doesn’t reflect the final amount. The full amount of the transaction won’t come out of your account until it settles 1-3 days later. For example, most gas stations place a $1.00 charge on your account to determine if it’s a valid card, and the full cost of the gas does not come out of your account until the transaction settles in 1-3 days.

If you see an amount charged, it won’t necessarily come out of your account. Some pledges simply disappear without actually taking any of your money. If you wish to dispute an item or report it as fraud, we must wait until the money is actually taken from your account. If you see multiple pledges for the same transaction, the funds may still only be deducted a single time.

There are daily limits on card usage. You may withdraw up to $405.00 from an ATM in one day, and up to $1,000.00 from Point of Sale (any non-ATM transaction) in one day. If you need to temporarily raise your daily limit for a large purchase, just give us a call at 1-800-344-2274.
To activate your MasterMoney® Debit Card, call 1-800-242-4671 during business hours and select option #4, or visit a First Northern Bank and Trust ATM location. To activate the card at the ATM, you must know your current PIN and conduct a balance inquiry.

To change your PIN at one of our ATMs, select the proper screen option: change password or change security code.

You can also update your PIN by calling 1-888-891-2435. Your card must be activated at an ATM or by a bank employee before using the PIN change phone number.
If someone calls you requesting information about your account, be wary. Falcon will only ask you to confirm specific items as fraud or not. They will call you with an incident number from “Risk Management representing First Northern Bank and Trust”. 

They will not ask for your checking account number or social security number! If anyone calls asking for personal information, particularly if they do not say the name of the bank, do not tell them anything!
If you plan to travel out of the area or out of the country, be sure to let us know. We can alert the Fraud Center about your plans so they don’t block your card.

Remember, when traveling, it’s a good idea to carry multiple forms of payment (cash, debit card, credit card, etc.).

You can also complete the Debit Card Travel Notification Form and submit it to the bank before you leave on your trip.
The Business MasterMoney® Debit Card is only available to customers who maintain a Business Checking Account with First Northern Bank and Trust. MasterMoney and Mastercard are registered trademarks of Mastercard International Incorporated.
