Mobile Check Deposits from Anywhere


Before mobile phones and tablets, checks had to be cashed in person or by mail. Now, mobile check deposits allows you to deposit your checks from anywhere, so long as your mobile device has Internet or cellular service. Most banks provide mobile apps to make the process easier, and First Bank* is no exception. First Bank provides mobile check deposits** for businesses and individuals so that you can deposit a check from anywhere, safely and securely.

How Mobile Check Deposits Work

Mobile check deposits use digital technology to deposit money into your account. All you need is a smartphone or tablet with a good camera. Here’s how it works:

Sign Checks and Find a Flat Surface

Even with digital deposits, the back of a check needs to be signed by the account holder. For added security, you can also include a restricted endorsement, such as, “For Mobile Deposit Only” underneath your signature.

Next, find a flat, well-lit surface. This will help you get the best possible image.

Take Photos Using the App

Using the secure camera within a mobile banking app snap a picture of the front and back of the check. You’ll see prompts on the screen that will help guide you. Make sure to wait for the camera to focus before taking the picture so that numbers and letters are clear.

Deposit multiple checks per day using your mobile app. At First Bank, individuals can deposit up to $4,000 in mobile checks in one day, and business accounts can deposit up to $10,000.

Deposit Your Checks

When you press deposit, the pictures of your checks are sent to our databases and reviewed. At First Bank, if you deposit your checks before 6 PM on a normal business day, your funds will appear in your account the next day (if approved).

Check Your Email for Verification

First Bank sends two email verifications for all mobile check deposit transactions for your records.
