Important Facts to Remember:

  • Endorsements - Sign your name on the back of the check as you normally would and write “For Remote Deposit” underneath your signature. If your check is not properly endorsed for Remote Deposit, it may be rejected.
  • Funds Availability - All Mobile Banking deposits that are submitted and accepted prior to 5:00 PM ET on any business day will be credited to your account the next business day (provided no hold is placed and the deposit is not rejected). Business days are Monday – Friday, excluding Federal Holidays
  • Limits – Daily Deposit Limit: 5 Items and/or $1000 - Monthly Deposit Limit: 15 Items and/or $5000 **
  • Deposits – You may only deposit checks drawn on a United States bank that are made payable to the account owner, and payable in U.S. currency. For instance, John Doe has a personal account and a business account, Expert Lawn Care. If the check is made out to Expert Lawn Care, it must be deposited to the Expert Lawn Care account, not John Doe’s personal account.
