First, sign the back of your card. Then yes, you can use your temporary card to make purchases or get cash one hour after leaving the bank.

If you run into any issues, call the number on the back of your Visa Instant Debit card. For comments or assistance, stop by your local First Bank & Trust location or call 800.843.1552.
