Q: Why should I use Mobile Banking?

A: Because of all the times when it could come in handy:

  • When you’re in a store and see a big-ticket item you want, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to check your account balance and make sure you have enough in your account to cover it?
  • When you’re waiting around in a doctor’s office or at the DMV or an airport, wouldn’t that be a good time to check and review your transaction history?
  • When you’re on vacation, running errands or have no computer access for any other reason and have a bill you forgot to pay from home, wouldn’t it be convenient to be able to make that bill payment from your phone?
  • Suppose you’re going out and realize you’ll need some cash. How great would it be to be able to use your phone to find the closest ATM?

Q: Is there any charge for using Mobile Banking?

A: Our Mobile Banking is free!

Q: What do I need to use Mobile Banking?

A: All you need is an Online Banking account and a smartphone (iOS/Apple iPhone, Android), a web-enabled device (mobile browser) or a standard mobile device with text capabilities.
