Digital Banking Conversion Guide

Empower your financial future with DCU Digital Banking.

Since 1979, we’ve known that digital is the future. Not only is it in our name. It’s in our company DNA. That’s why we’re reinventing what digital banking means to you – bringing together innovative tools and unique features that help you take control of your money. 

DCU Digital Banking offers built-in financial wellness tools that put you in the driver’s seat and provides a holistic view of your finances. This means you view all of your accounts in one place – including ones at other financial institutions.

Our unique-to-you banking experience focuses on your money’s future – making it easy to create strategic financial goals and review your progress every step of the way. We can also help you pay off your loans even faster with our easy-to-use payment planner.

FutureLook™
FutureLook™ helps you see into your financial future by providing insight into your spending habits. When you opt into this feature, you’ll see an easy-to-read forecast based on the cumulative effect of income and expenses you have within the checking account you elect.

Specifically, FutureLook™ identifies your recurring income (e.g., paychecks), recurring expenses (e.g., electric bill), and average daily spending (e.g., the morning coffee run). By doing so, you can see your estimated checking account balance one month into the future (on a daily basis) and one year into the future (on a monthly basis).

All in all, FutureLook™ is a unique tool that helps you see how your money could better serve you.

Goals
We make it easy to focus on your life goals with a digital banking experience that was designed for you. You can create strategic financial goals and review your progress every step of the way. No matter what you’re saving money for, we can help you create a personalized action plan that works for you.
