Lost card replacement

Should your card be lost or stolen, please call the Nedbank Contact Centre immediately on +27 (0)860 555 111 to block it as soon as you realise that it is missing.

When you block one of the cards, the other card will remain active so you will still be able to spend abroad.


Additional information

Before you travel

  • Ensure that you sign the back of both cards, mainly to help merchants verify whether or not you are the owner of your card.
  • Change the PIN to one you will remember. Each card can have a different PIN if you so choose. If you choose to use the PIN it is issued with,  memorise it and keep the printed PIN separate from your cards at all times.
  • Download and register on the Nedbank Money app from your app store, your card will be automatically registered. This will ensure you can track your spend and always know what the current balances of your currency pocket balances on the go.
