Can I pay bills through mobile banking?
Yes. You may also conveniently add new payees and schedule bill payments.
Can I make a payment on my Bristol County Savings Bank loan through mobile banking?
Yes. Our loan customers have easy access to make loan payments and view account balances.
What else can I do with mobile banking?
Here are some of the other convenient features of BCSB mobile banking:
- Deposit checks as soon as you receive them by taking pictures with your phone or tablet, using our convenient and secure Remote Deposit Capture feature – no more waiting to get to the bank
- Check your account balances, search recent transactions by date, amount, or check number, view cleared checks. Save even more time with a new swipe feature for “fast balance” plus the last five transactions

How can I deposit a check using my mobile device and mobile banking?
Within the mobile banking app, select the option to make a deposit. You’ll be prompted to choose which account you want to deposit into, and to enter the amount of the check. Next you’ll be asked to take a photo of the front and back of your check, using your phone’s built-in camera. (Don’t forget to endorse the back of the check!) Then submit the deposit – you’ll receive a verification message that the deposit has been submitted.
When I make a deposit through mobile banking, what should I do with the check?
Upon your receipt of a confirmation that the Bank has received and accepted an image that you have transmitted, you must retain the check for at least 30 days from the date of the image transmission. After this time, you must securely destroy the check, mark it “VOID” or otherwise render it incapable of further transmission, deposit, or presentment.
When I make a mobile deposit when are the funds available to me?
In general, mobile deposits received before 5 PM are available the next business day. That means that generally mobile deposit availability is actually better than an ATM deposit which has an automatic 2 day hold. (Note: We do reserve the right to place a hold on the mobile deposit).
One of our goals is to make using mobile banking for deposits as easy and convenient as making a deposit at our branches. A deposit made using mobile deposit is available to you the next business day in most cases just as if it was made at a branch. While mobile deposits CAN be made 24 x 7 x 365, there is still a “business” day cutoff for a mobile deposit, which is 5 PM daily (M-F).
Does the BCSB mobile app use push notifications?
Yes. You can enroll in push notifications by selecting ‘Banking Services’ in the mobile app and navigating to ‘Manage Alerts’ and selecting ‘Push Notification Enrollment’.
Once enrolled, you will automatically receive push notifications for our security alerts (like when your password has been changed). If you would like to receive push notifications for other types of alerts (like for a low balance), navigate to the ‘Manage My Alerts’ page. You will see an area within each alert where you can add your device.
Please note: if you uninstall and reinstall the app, you will need to reenroll for push notifications.
See ‘Account Alerts and eNotices’ for a list of available alerts.
Do I need to notify Bristol County Savings Bank if I lose my mobile phone or tablet?
No. You should report the loss to your mobile carrier who will stop service to your device. As long as your password remains secure, you are protected from fraudulent use. If your original phone number is retained after you receive a new phone, you will need to download the application again, but your exiting password will continue to work. If you are issued a new phone number, you will need to repeat the registration/activation process.
- What should I do if I forget my password?
Will a joint account holder be able to access our account from two different mobile devices?
Yes. Two people can have access to the same joint account number via their individual mobile devices as long as each account owner has their own digital banking profile. Each account holder will receive a unique password for access.
What are the benefits of receiving eStatements?
eStatements are a safe, secure way to protect your information and are easily accessed through digital banking. You can receive email reminders sent to your email address whenever your new eStatement is available and eliminate paper statements to help reduce paper waste and conserve resources. Keep track of your finances by printing or saving your eStatements to your computer, CD, or hard drive and view monthly loan statements, including remaining balance and prior payment information all in one place.
