Once you've enrolled or logged into Online Banking, be sure to enjoy the new Democracy FCU Mobile Banking app as well! If you had the app on your device prior to the upgrade on July 25, 2017, you will need to be sure you have the newest version. Android users must uninstall the old version of the Democracy FCU app and reinstall the new one. iPhone users may need to update their application if automatic updates aren't turned on.

Click on the Transfers icon and click on the “Classic” transfers tab. Choose the account the money will be transferred from and to, the amount, date and frequency and you’re all set!

Additionally, we ask Mint users to not open Mint for 3-5 business days after the conversion (July 25) to ensure the Mint product is properly updated. No additional action should be required.

Yes. The app uses secure and encrypted SSL technology to ensure that check images are seen only by those who are authorized to process your deposit.
To ensure you are capturing the full image of your check, flatten the check, and make sure that none of the corners are bent. Place the check on a flat, dark, non-reflective and un-patterned surface with adequate light that does not cast a strong shadow on the check. If the check is badly damaged or wrinkled, you may need to present the check to a teller so it can be processed manually.
Funds deposited through mobile banking are processed like all other deposits and are subject to our Funds Availability Policy.
No. P2P can be completed through both online and mobile banking.

You will need the recipients email address or mobile phone number. Additionally you will need your debit card number and expiration date.
No. Your account information will not be shared. The payee will only see your name and any personal memo you sent with the payment request.
If you are having trouble sending money, double check your debit card information. It should be your Democracy FCU debit card or the debit card you want to send money from. Please make sure it is not the debit card information for where the money is going.
If you have additional questions or concerns please call us at 202-488-5400 or ask to see a Financial Services Representative when you visit a branch.
