(Good Things Utah) – Advances in technology over the past 20 years have allowed us to move from virtually all of our financial activities within the walls of a financial institution to completing many of our financial transactions on the network. that fits in the palm of our hand.
Although new technologies have made it easier than ever to access our money, some of us may still feel overwhelmed by the possibilities that can help us simplify our finances. Krystalina Brown from Mountain America Credit Union joined Good Things Utah to talk to us about technology products people use to help manage finances.
Mountain America mobile app
The first, and probably the most easily accessible, is your financial institution‘s mobile banking app. For Mountain America Credit Union members, the mobile app allows users to securely check balances, view transaction history, transfer funds, pay bills, locate branches and ATMs. machines nearby and make mobile deposits anytime, anywhere. Besides, it allows users to access money management and budgeting tools to track long term savings goals, monitor all your financial accounts in one place, view your spending habits, track your net worth from month to month, etc.
The Card Manager, which is part of the app, allows members to freeze / unblock their debit or credit cards, order a new card, set travel notifications and update their PIN code. Another cool feature is CreditLock. It locks your credit report from your Mountain America mobile app and you get free access to your FICO® score.
Mountain America Credit Union has also launched a new financial wellness tool in the mobile app and online banking to help you track your progress toward your financial goals.
Speaking of financial goals, many people want to use apps to start investing in their goals. There are plenty of apps to choose from, but Mountain America has one you must try.
When comparing investing apps, consider your budget, account management fees, and how you plan to use your account. Mountain America recently rolled out a feature in the mobile app called MyInvest.
