Here are the features you need to know as a new parent, so you can keep track of your finances, pay your bills and send money, all before naptime is over.

Receive account alerts

When you’re too busy to actively monitor your bank accounts, it’s nice to know that you can be automatically notified of low balances, large purchases, suspicious transactions and more. With the U.S. Bank Mobile App, it’s easy to set up account alerts to keep you up to date via text1 or email about important account activity.


Deposit checks

With the U.S. Bank Mobile App, there’s no need to pack up the baby for a trip to the bank to deposit a check. Simply snap a pic with the mobile check deposit2 feature and get the money into your account without the hassle.  


Manage and pay bills

With your new baby as your first priority, it’s easy to lose track of your bills. Manage them directly in the U.S. Bank Mobile App and set up autopay3 for predictable expenses so you never miss a beat.

Keep credit and debit cards safe and secure

If you mistakenly drop your card in the laundry hamper (or just misplace it), the U.S. Bank Mobile App makes it easy to instantly lock your card, then unlock it again when you find it. If it doesn’t turn up, you can report your card lost or stolen, freezing the account while you wait for the replacement to arrive.
