Mobile Check Deposit

Deposit a check anywhere. Safely and securely.

First Bank’s mobile banking app makes depositing a check as easy as snapping a picture on your phone.

  • Deposit up to $10,000 worth of checks ($5,000 per item) before 6 pm on a regular business day and see funds available the next day if approved
  • Deposit checks from your smartphone or tablet device
  • Get email notifications that deposit was received
  • Depositing a check on your phone or tablet is just as secure as handing it to your local teller

Ready to deposit a check?

Step 1

Download the mobile application from the Apple or Android app stores, or use our text to download tool.

Step 4

Once you’re back in the app and your phone camera is activated, you will need to take a photo of the front and back of the check you’d like to deposit. Be sure the check has been endorsed by all payees and designate the item as “For Mobile Deposit Only.” Your screen will show you which side to capture, and the helpful brackets provide size guidelines.

Step 5

After you have taken photos of the front and back of the check, you will be asked to confirm the images. If everything looks good, click on Submit Deposit to finish the transaction. If you have made this mobile deposit before 6 pm on a regular business day, you will see the funds in your First Bank account the next day.
