Check Your Account

The fastest way to do this is to follow these instructions:
- Visit the Wells Fargo home page or open the Wells Fargo Mobile app.

- If you have multiple bills, find the one associated with your lost or stolen debit card.
- Click the “…” icon at the top of the page. The More services menu appears.

If you find unauthorized charges, you may not have to pay them because the bank has a liability guarantee.
Ordering a Replacement Card
There are three ways to request a replacement debit card:
- Call the Wells Fargo customer service line and request a new card from a representative.
- Visit any Wells Fargo bank and ask for a replacement card in person.
- Order a replacement card using the Wells Fargo Mobile app.
You should receive your new card within five to seven business days. You do not have to pay any replacement costs. If you need your new card sooner, you can ask them to speed up the process, which they can do for $16. Then you should receive your new card within three business days.
