Can someone sign a check over to me for Mobile Deposit?

No. When a check is signed over for deposit, this is considered a third-party check. Third-party checks are subject to a hold. Please bring your third-party deposits to a branch location for review.

Additionally, we will not accept checks made payable to "cash" via Remote Deposit.  Please bring these checks into a branch location.

Do you accept starter checks?

We do not accept starter checks via mobile deposit.

What if my deposit is denied?

If your deposit is denied, you will be notified via Mobile App Messaging. The Mobile App message may request that the deposit be brought into a branch location for further review.

How long should I hold onto my check after depositing?

You may hold onto the check as long as you like. For your protection, always store checks in a secured area. We suggest writing the letter "T" at the top of your Mobile Deposits after making the deposit, to remind yourself that the deposit has been made via the Telhio Mobile App.
