Do you have our smartphone app?

Mobile banking that respects and rewards your time.

Life is truly mobile when you download the free Penn East smartphone app for iPhone and Android. Input your online banking login credentials and immediately see your balances, move money, pay your loans or other bills, deposit checks, and much more! Concerned about security? PEFCU’s smartphone app carries the same industry standard encryption as online banking and adds a biometric security using your fingerprint or retina scan (if supported by your device) for even more protection.
