Mobile Check Deposit Tips

Tips for taking a good photo of your check:
  1. Take photo in a well-lit area
  2. Prevent glare—do not use your flash
  3. Avoid shooting from angles to ensure check appears correctly
  4. Place check on an even surface to avoid angles and blurring of image
  5. Ensure all aspects of check are included in the picture
  6. Hold phone steady while shooting
  7. Place the check on a dark  or a contrasting surface
  8. Place the back of the check with the endorsement signature on the right hand side
Additional points to consider:
  • Make sure information on check is legible
  • Check amounts (those written both numerically and spelled out) should match
  • Make sure check has been endorsed by all appropriate parties, i.e. if the check is written out to you and another individual,you both most endorse the check. If check is written to you or an additional person, (as indicated by “Jessica or Lisa Thomas” or “Jessica/Lisa Thomas”) only one of you needs to sign.

Ineligible items include:
  • Checks not payable to the account owner
  • Altered checks, or suspect checks
  • Checks payable jointly, unless deposited into an account with the names of all payees
  • Checks dated more than six months prior to the date of deposit or in the future
  • Checks drawn against a line of credit
  • Checks drawn on banks located outside the US
  • Checks drawn on US banks in a foreign currency
