​​Changes to Mastercard Benefits

On July 1, 2019, Mastercard will be enhancing its Mastercard ID Theft Protection program by adding Single Bureau Credit Monitoring, Financial Account Takeover Monitoring, and URL and Domain Monitoring to the existing family of ID Theft Protection benefits.  These enhancements will be available to all HLEFCU Mastercard Debit and Credit cardholders.

Mastercard is also making adjustments to its Price Protection Service.  Beginning July 1, 2019, Price Protection will no longer be available.  Claims filed prior to the July 1, 2019, deadline will continue to process normally.  However, Mastercard Debit Price Protection claims will no longer be accepted thereafter.
