Remote Check Deposit Frequently Asked Questions

How does Remote Check Deposit work?

It works by using the camera on your phone to capture an image of the check. Endorse the back of the check by signing it and writing “for Mobile Deposit only” underneath your signature. The image is processed the same way as making a deposit at a branch or at an ATM. None of the check images are stored on your phone, so you can be assured that it is secure.

Is there a fee?

Deposits made to a personal membership account will not be charged.

After completing the mobile deposit, what do I do with the check?

You should retain the check in a secure location for 14 days and then, after confirming the deposited funds have been applied to your account correctly, destroy the check.

What types of checks are accepted?

  • U.S. Check
  • Money Order
  • Travelers Checks
