WASHINGTON -- Citibank officials will mail out new government travel charge cards Aug. 13 through Sept. 19. Initial distribution will begin with cardholders at overseas locations and migrate from the west to the east coast.

The new cards will be sent to addresses on file with Bank of America, so all cardholders must ensure their information is current. Any mail sent to an incorrect address will be returned to Citibank.

Those who do not receive a new card by Oct. 1, should contact their local agency program coordinator. The new cards will not be active until Nov. 30, so cardholders will continue to use the Bank of America cards until then. Upon receiving the new card, all cardholders will need to verify receipt by following the instructions affixed to the card.

For more information, contact a local APC.
