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.

Q: The Mobile Banking App is asking for my username. I don’t remember setting one up. What is my username?

A: Your username is your Lafayette Federal account number. The first time you log in you will need to enter your username. The next time, you’ll just need to enter your Online Banking password.

Q: What if my phone’s lost or stolen?

A: If your phone is lost or stolen, don’t worry. Your Mobile Banking access is secured. Your password is never stored on the phone, nor is any other personal information from your Mobile Banking account. Also, your login session always times out automatically after ten minutes of inactivity.
