How we handle deposit issues

A deposit will be rejected if the check image is blurry or if the check was already deposited. You may receive an email from us, letting you know the check was rejected.  If you enter the check incorrectly, your deposit will be adjusted and you may be notified by email.

Who is eligible?

Your deposit account must be open for a minimum of 30 days and have no history of returned items, past due loan payments greater than 30 days or overdrafts. (A Courtesy Pay payment is permissible so long as the negative balance is/was resolved within the required time period.) You must be at least 18 years old with a valid email address and mobile telephone number. Only personal accounts are eligible for Mobile Deposit Capture. Business accounts (such as a DBA, Sole Proprietorships, Partnerships, etc.) are not eligible.
