What do I do with the check once it is deposited?
You agree that you will never re-present the original check. Once the mobile deposit is complete, please clearly mark the item "mobile deposit on xx/xx/xxxx date" on the front of the check. Accidental or intentional re-presentment of a Mobile Deposit item can cause Mobile Deposits to be turned off or your checking account to be closed. You understand that you are responsible if anyone is asked to make a payment based on an original check that has already been paid.
You should securely store the original check for 60 days after you've made the deposit. If there is a problem once we receive the deposit, we'll notify you and ask you to send your original check to the bank within 5 business days. Your account will be credited once the original check is received and confirmed at the bank. In the end, you're responsible for the proper disposal of your check within a reasonable amount of time. After you verify that your Mobile Deposit has cleared, dispose of the check by marking it "VOID" and destroying it by cross-cut shredding.
Do I need to endorse the back of my check before I take a picture?
Yes, please. Endorse your check on the back by signing your name as normal and writing "For Mobile Deposit" under your signature. Endorsements must be made on the back of the check within 1 1/2 inches from the top edge.
What if I forget to endorse the back of my check?
Oops! The software will not allow your deposit to go through without the check being properly endorsed. You will receive an error message asking you to retake the photo of the back of the check.
When will my funds be available?
If we receive your deposit before 3 p.m. on a business day, we'll credit your account by the end of the day. Deposits received after 3 p.m. (or on weekends and federal holidays) are credited to your account by the end of the next business day. Availability of funds is pursuant to Regulation CC and GSB's applicable funds availability schedule and policies.
What items are available to deposit?
You can scan and deposit only checks, and you can deposit only into your GSB checking and savings accounts. Do not use a deposit ticket. Do not use Mobile Deposit for the following:
- Checks payable to any person or entity other than you (i.e. payable to another party and then endorsed by you).
- Checks or items containing an alteration to any of the fields on the front of the check or item, or which you know or suspect, or should know or suspect are fraudulent or otherwise not authorized by the owner of the account on which the check or item is drawn.
- Checks or items previously converted to a substitute check, as defined in Reg CC.
- Checks or items not payable in US currency.
- Checks or items dated more than 6 months prior to the date of deposit.
- Checks or items prohibited by GSB's current deposit procedures or which are otherwise not acceptable under the terms of you GSB account.
- Checks payable on sight or payable through Drafts, as defined by Reg. CC.
- Checks with any endorsement on the back other than that specified in this agreement.
- $10,000 limit per deposit
We all make mistakes. Simply use the mobile app (or online banking) and transfer the money to the correct account once the funds are made available.
Make sure the check is laying on a flat surface in a well-lit area (on a dark background) before you take the picture. Avoid shadows such as those created by holding the camera between your item and the light source. Take a picture of only one check at a time with all four corners visible. No other objects should be visible in the photo. If you're still getting an error message, such as "image failed", you will need to mail in your check or bring it to the bank or ATM to be deposited.
When you successfully submit your check via Mobile Deposit, you'll see a "deposit accepted" message on the screen. You will also receive an email notification from email@example.com that your deposit has been received by our bank and also when it has been approved. You can also verify receipt of your deposit via the mobile app or online banking (account transactions).
If an error occurs during your deposit process you will receive an error message. Or, we will contact you by phone or email within one business day if an error occurs upon receipt at the bank.
No, but you can deposit into one account and once the funds are available make a transfer into another account.
