Remember when phones had cords and you had to walk five miles in the snow, uphill both ways, to deposit your paycheck every month?  If not, you’ve probably heard stories about it.

So many things are easier now—like banking. With OCCU’s mobile banking options, you can go anywhere you want and always stay close to your money. That means you’ll have more time to spend on other things, because managing your money takes just a fraction of the time it used to.

From the MyOCCU Mobile Banking app to our vast network of shared branches, we aim to make managing your finances as easy as possible. Here are four ways OCCU can help you enjoy more of the freedom you crave:


1. Secure messaging

Got a question? Need help with an issue? No need to make a phone call. With secure messaging, you can drop us a line right from MyOCCU Mobile. It’s like texting, but since it’s a secure platform, your financial information remains safe and private. You can even set up an alert to notify you by email when you get a response.


2. Mobile deposits

The next time you’ve got a check to deposit, save yourself a trip to the bank and deposit your money via MyOCCU Mobile instead. Just endorse the check, take a couple of snaps with your camera, and get on with your day. You don’t even have to leave your house.


3. Touch ID and facial recognition

It’s probably safe to say most of us have more passwords than we care to remember. That’s why we’ve added Touch ID and facial recognition to MyOCCU Mobile. Instead of typing in a password every time you log in, you can enroll your device in Touch ID or facial recognition and log in. Your financial info gets an extra layer of security, and you get more head space for remembering things—like where you put your phone.


4. Shared branching

Despite all the amazing things you can do from your mobile device, there may be times when you still need to visit a branch in person. But what if you’re visiting someone in another state, or you’ve decided to move across the country? With shared branching, you can conduct transactions at thousands of locations nationwide. Wherever you are, just type in your location on our website or mobile app to find a shared branch near you.


Having money comes with certain responsibilities, but they don’t have to weigh you down. OCCU’s remote banking options help you manage your money quickly and easily, leaving you free to live life on your terms.
