Visa Account Updater (VAU) is an account updating service in which your Peoples Bank Visa Debit Card will be automatically enrolled. If for any reason a new card is issued, the VAU service may update relevant card data (card numbers and expiration dates) to appropriate merchants who participate in VAU. This service provides updates to a Visa database only. The database is accessed by those qualified merchants seeking your account information after you have requested they process a recurring payment or payments. This service is provided as a free benefit to you to help facilitate uninterrupted processing of your recurring payments.


If you have any questions or wish to opt-out of the VAU service please contact a Customer Service Representative at (225)638-3713 or send a written request either by mail (P. O. Drawer 747, New Roads, LA 70760), or email (info@thefriendlybank.com). (VAU is effective as of 3-31-2018)




Please notify Peoples Bank when you travel and plan to use your debit card. We have recently upgraded security features and certain transactions may not process without prior notification.
