Mobile Deposits

Why did my check get rejected?

Your check could have been rejected for several reasons including:

  • Your check image was not clear.
  • Your check exceeded the daily limit of $7,500.
  • Your check was a duplicate deposit.
  • Your check was not endorsed.
How do I know my deposit was received?

At any time you can see the status of the deposit by selecting Deposit and then View mobile deposit history. Once your deposit is accepted, it will turn green within mobile deposit history.

What types of checks can I not deposit through Mobile Deposits?

You can deposit checks payable in U.S. dollars and drawn at any U.S. bank, including personal and business checks. The check must also be payable to, and endorsed by, the account holder.

  • Checks payable to any person or entity other than the person or entity that owns the account into which the check is being deposited.

  • Checks drawn on a financial institution located outside the U.S.
  • Checks not payable in U.S. currency.
  • Checks dated more than six (6) months prior to the date of deposit.
