Updates to the PCard program

In March, JPMorgan Chase, the bank which issues U-M’s PCards, is making a processing change. There will be minimal impact to PCard holders as a result of this change, but we do want to provide the following updates:

Issuance of replacement PCards in August

  • As a result of the JP Morgan Chase change, you’ll be receiving a new PCard. JPMorgan Chase will begin issuing new PCards in August 2017. We’ll send you an email several days before your PCard is mailed so you’ll know when it’s going to arrive. Replacement PCards will be issued as chip cards with an additional year added to the existing expiration date.
