Report your CatCard Lost

It is the cardholder's responsibility to report their CatCard lost or stolen. It is important to report your card lost or stolen as that will suspend activity on your account until either a new card is issued or you let us know your card has been found. The cardholder is responsible for all transactions until the CatCard is reported lost or stolen.

You can report your card lost 24 hours a day by logging in to your online account, logging in to the GET Mobile app, or calling 406-994-2273 (please leave a voicemail if prompted).

If you find your card after reporting it lost, for your protection you must log in to youronline account, log in to the GET Mobile app, or come to the CatCard Service Window, to report your card as found.

Lost cards do get turned in to CatCard on a daily basis so please stop by or call to see if your card has been turned in. If your CatCard is turned in, we will send you an email to let you know we have it.  There is a $20.00 charge for all replacement CatCards.
