I lost my Arch card/my Arch Card was stolen. What should I do?
Uh-oh. Lose your Arch Card? Not to worry: we’ve got you covered. Just be sure to keep your activation and reload receipts; you will need them to replace a lost or stolen card.
For damaged cards, it is recommended you immediately call (800) 244-6227 to cancel and replace your card. For lost or stolen cards, call (800) 244-6227 immediately to cancel your card. You can also complete and send in the Lost/Stolen Arch Card Form along with your original activation receipt—but if the Arch Card is used before the form is received, the funds will not be reimbursed.
