With the Bethpage iPhone Mobile App
(Bethpage, NY) Bethpage Federal Credit Union, Long Island’s leading community financial institution, announces the expansion of its Mobile Banking options for members with the introduction of Mobile Check Deposits for its Bethpage iPhone Mobile App. Specifically for iPhone users, Bethpage’s iPhone Mobile App now enables Bethpage members to scan and deposit checks via phone, directly into their Bethpage account, free of charge. Bethpage’s iPhone App also lets members get account alerts, manage and pay bills, transfer money between checking and savings accounts, and view transaction history.
Designed to offer the freedom of quick and easy banking, Bethpage’s Mobile Check Deposits feature for its Bethpage iPhone Mobile App joins Bethpage’s roster of growing Mobile Banking services for individual members.

Text Banking provides services for those without a smartphone, and My Home Deposit provides non-iPhone users the ability to deposit checks using any Windows-based connected computer and a scanner.
The Bethpage iPhone Mobile App safely deposits checks by capturing a photo of the front and back of an endorsed check, sending it straight into a user’s Bethpage account and notifying the user with a deposit confirmation. The application can be downloaded for free at itunes.com by searching “Bethpage Federal Credit Union.”
