How does Mobile Deposit work?
If you have an iPhone® or Android™ smart phone, simply download the application. Then, log in. You'll key in the amount of the deposit, and take a picture of the front and back of the check. That's it! Within seconds of uploading the transaction, you'll receive a confirmation that the deposit was received successfully.
What types of checks can be processed through Mobile Deposit?
All personal and business U.S. checks can be processed through Mobile Deposit. Checks from Canada and other foreign countries, food stamps, savings bonds and poor image quality checks must be deposited traditionally.
How secure is Mobile Deposit?
Mobile Deposit is very secure. It features multiple layers of security, giving your account and check data the highest level of safety available.
When can electronic deposits be issued to the financial institution?
You can transmit mobile deposits to the financial institution 24-hours a day, 7-days a week including weekends and holidays, with the exception of the financial institution's routine maintenance downtime.
When will deposits be posted into my account?
Deposits received electronically are processed similar to traditional paper deposits during the business day. The financial institution's window for processing electronic deposits may be extended. Contact your financial institution for details.
What should I do with the original paper checks after deposits are made?
Original checks should be stored for a minimum amount of time prior to being destroyed, as determined by your financial institution.
How do I prevent checks from being scanned and deposited twice?
The software has built-in duplicate detection tools that detect items already captured. If the software detects potential duplicate checks, an alert prompts you to make a decision about the items in question. Also endorse the back of the check with "For Mobile Deposit Only" as a precaution.
How do I know the image quality is acceptable?
The software has an Image Quality Assessment (IQA) tool that automatically identifies problems with the check image. If a problem is detected, you'll be asked to retake the photo.
