What is Zelle®?
Zelle® is an easy way to send or receive money between your PFCU account and almost any other U.S. bank account, typically within minutes1. There’s no need to withdraw cash or send a check. Conveniently pay a friend for dinner, send money to kids at college, pay the landscaper or even your babysitter electronically. With just an email address or mobile phone number, you can quickly, safely and easily send and receive money with almost anyone, regardless of where they bank.
The fast, easy and safe way to send money. And It’s FREE
To get started, simply log in to online banking and follow a few simple steps to enroll your Zelle® profile. After you’ve enrolled, add your recipient’s email address or U.S. mobile number, the amount you’d like to send or request, review and add a memo, and hit “confirm.” In most cases, the money is typically available in minutes. To receive money, just share your enrolled email address or mobile number with a friend or person you trust and ask them to send you money with Zelle®. The money will be added directly to your Picatinny bank account. It’s that simple! For more information about Zelle®, please review the Frequently Asked Questions or contact us at 973-361-5225.
