Mobile and Text Banking

BFCU is now on your mobile devices!

Away from your computer? You can use all of the features of Online Banking on your cell phone, including bill pay! 

If you are on vacation, at work or on the go you can access your BFCU accounts from your cell phone the same way you do at home.  You can check balances, view account history, transfer money and even pay your bills with the same security and ease as when you are on your home computer!

If you don't want to log in to Online Banking from your phone, you can access your account information via text messaging.  You can receive a scheduled text message with your balance or you can text us when you want to know your balance or account history. 

For Example:
If you are standing in line at a store and need a quick balance to make sure your purchase is approved you can Text BAL and receive your balance in just a few seconds!  If you want to see your last five transactions because you are looking to see if a check cleared or a paycheck was deposited, you can Text LAST and receive your last five transactions just as quickly!

It really is that easy.....and convenient!
