Remote Deposit Capture now available for NFFCU Members

Deposit your checks quickly and easily with your mobile phone.

At Newark Firemen FCU, we are always investing in new technologies that will benefit our members.  It is our goal to continually provide the best services and technologies available to make our members’ banking experience as convenient as possible.  With that said, Newark Firemen FCU is happy to announce that Remote Deposit Capture (RDC) is now available as one of our mobile banking features.  This feature will allow our “on the go” members to deposit funds to their accounts merely by taking a picture of their check.

To begin, you first need to do the following:

  • Download the Newark Firemen FCU Mobile app from the Google Play Store or the App Store.
  • Upon download, open the app and click the sign up button, which will take you to the enrollment page.
  • Provide all requested information on the enrollment page and click submit.  Remember to read the guidelines for creating both your username and password.
  • Once you click submit, you will see a message on the page that your account will be approved in about 1-2 business days.
  • You will receive an email once your application has been accepted and you can login and begin depositing.

When you have a check that you would like to deposit, endorse your check and write RDC or Remote Deposit Capture below your endorsement.  Next, with your approved username and password, login to the Newark Firemen FCU mobile app.  From the menu, click deposit.  The app will open to a screen where you enter the amount of the deposit.  Once you have entered the deposit amount, click next at the bottom of the screen.  You will then take pictures of both the front and back of your check and click upload.  If your pictures are clear, you will receive notification that your upload was successful.  In the event that your pictures were not clear, you will be asked to complete the process again.

After your upload is successful, return to the main menu and click review.  You will be able to view your pending deposits, to check their status.  If you have any questions regarding the app and how to use it, feel free to contact us.
