Denali’s “going app” over mobile access

By Bob Teachworth, President & CEO

Great is about to get better as Denali rolls out its mobile app upgrade, which is faster and easier to use. Here are just a few of the exciting improvements:

  • Easily find your most commonly used transactions, all on your new home page;
  • Simplify your life with faster, easier Bill Pay functionality;
  • Quickly find your most important data with improved Search; and
  • Find a convenient branch or ATM wherever you are with interactive maps.

We recommend our mobile app users to visit the appropriate app store (Apple or Android) and updating the app. You can tell you have the right app when you see the gold band across the top, right-hand side of the icon.

If you have not downloaded the Denali mobile app, you are missing great services such as:

  • Remote deposits;
  • Online bill pay;
  • Touch login for touch-enabled Apple iOS devices;
  • Account balances;
  • Fund transfers;
  • Complete locations services, to find the nearest Denali branch, shared branch location and ATMs; and
  • Security and transaction alerts.

You must be enrolled in Online Banking to access your account via the Denali Mobile Banking app. Sign up today at your nearest branch, or call the Member Contact Center at 907-257-7200, option 3 (toll-free at 800-764-1123, option 3)

Denali Federal Credit Union does not charge a fee for the use of our Mobile Banking service, though your mobile service provider may charge for web access or messaging. Mobile banking is an important part of our Global Network initiative, so you are never far from secure, ‘round the clock access to your accounts.

Contributing to our communities –
a cooperative effort

By Bill Murray,  Chairman of the Board of Directors

Credit unions proudly trumpet the mission: “For People, Not Profit.” This underlying tenet of the credit union movement can be found every day at Denali FCU – from the democratically elected Board of Directors that helps direct the Credit Union’s strategic plans to your daily transactions, where members reap the benefits of lower loan rates and higher dividends than local banks.

The same people-first philosophy has driven Denali and our employees to get involved in community charitable activities and worthwhile causes.

In 2017, we’ll put our values into action with Denali Community Days, to replace the old “Member Appreciation Day” events we held throughout our branch network. Denali staff and volunteers are hard at work right now developing these community programs because we realize our strength is directly tied to the well-being of the cities we serve. This summer, we want to lead cooperative efforts between Denali’s members and staff to contribute our time and effort to build better communities. 

Keep an eye out in our newsletters, statements and website as we target specific community support programs and activities – we’ll be asking for your help to show Denali’s commitment to the betterment of our members and the communities where we live.

Over the years, Denali’s corporate citizenship has included a multitude of activities to focus our community efforts. These efforts have included financial donations to local non-profits, scholarships for college students, tutoring and participation in local school activities (include Junior Achievement programs) and community clean-up programs…just to name a few.  We are excited about this new program and the opportunities to be community advocates for the philosophy of serving “people, not profit.”
