How to Check the Status of a Debit Card
Debit cards look like credit cards, but are tied directly to your bank account.

Locate your bank's phone number. The phone number should be listed on the reverse side of the card.

Call the phone number and inquire about the card status. You may be required to confirm the Personal Identification Number (PIN) or Social Security Number (SSN) associated with the card.

Go to the bank website and create an account linked to your card. Here, you may need to verify your PIN or SSN.

Go to the nearest bank branch and ask a teller about the status of the debit card. You will likely be required to furnish proof of identification, such as a driver's license or passport.
