Security Center


Your personal security is important to us

We have recently improved our alert system for detecting fraud on Republic Bank debit card. For verification of suspicious transactions that occur on Republic Bank debit cards, Republic Bank will now call, email and/or send you a text message. If we can verify the transaction with you using one of these methods, it may avoid the suspension of your card.

To ensure we have your most current information, we are asking that you call Customer Service at 888.875.2265, visit your local store, or log into online banking and click the SETTINGS tab to update your mobile phone number or email address.

For your protection and overall account security, please avoid sending an email request to complete a funds transfer. Email scams; including phishing, email account takeover and spoofing of legitimate emails, are frequently used by cybercriminals and pose a significant threat. Please consider using online banking or visiting your local Republic Bank store to request such a transfer.

Beware of Fake Checks

Even in today’s digital and mobile world where electronic money transfers are common, consumers and businesses may still prefer the assumed security of paper cashier’s checks or official bank checks for large or major payments. Recipients generally prefer one of these checks over a personal check because the financial institution presumably has already collected the funds from the party purchasing the cashier’s checks or official bank checks. This means the payment is guaranteed, unless the check is counterfeit, so there are risks to consumers and businesses from these types.



Identity Theft Protection Service

Republic Bank will never request Customer's personal information by phone, through email, or provide links within an email to update information. Please call us immediately at 888.875.2265 if you believe that your Republic Bank account has been compromised.

Important Information for Customers Traveling Regarding Debit Card Transactions

We recently became aware of a high volume of debit card fraud occurring in multiple states throughout the US and abroad.  In order to protect your assets and as a preventative measure the bank has placed a Point of Sale (POS) authorization block on all transactions originating in these specific areas. You will be able to use your Republic Bank debit card for Point of Sale Transactions (POS) by selecting “DEBIT” and entering your four-digit pin. You will not be able to perform a “CREDIT” transaction using your ATM/Debit Card. ATM transactions will not be affected.

In the event you are planning to travel, please be prepared to use your debit card for only pin based/debit transactions. We take our obligation to protect the security and privacy of our customers very seriously. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and feel it is important to implement this temporary block for your protection.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Customer Service Center Monday through Friday 7:30 AM – 8:00 PM, Saturday 7:30 AM – 6:00 PM and Sunday 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM at 888.875.2265. Thank you for banking with us.
