Mobile Deposit is here! Members with the Credit Union Checking Account are now able to deposit paper checks electronically using our mobile banking app.
How to Access Mobile Deposit
(Must already have Online Banking and BCCU Mobile Banking)
If you don’t have BCCU Mobile, you need to download the free BCCU Mobile Banking App either from Google Play or the Apple App store. Once that is complete, you’ll have access to Mobile Deposit.
How to Make a Mobile Deposit
Attention Credit Union Mobile Deposit Users:
Effective July 1, 2018, Federal Reserve regulations will require ALL paper checks deposited electronically include a “Mobile Deposit Only” endorsement on the back of the check. Any checks submitted by Mobile Deposit without your signature, account number and “Mobile Deposit only” endorsement will be rejected starting July 1, 2018.
- Access your BCCU Mobile app and open the Mobile Deposits tab on the screen.
- Endorse the back of your check. These three requirements are necessary to reduce the opportunity for fraud:
- Account number
- The words “Mobile Deposit only”.
- Enter the check amount.
- Take an acceptable picture of the front and back of the check (See Helpful Tips section to the right).
- Hit the submit button.
Once the image has been accepted by the software, you’ll receive a message saying the check has been “submitted successfully”.
After the check has been reviewed by a Credit Union employee, the status will change from submitted to accepted.
Mobile deposits are credited to your account in the back office cycle and will be available the next business day (subject to Funds Availability rules.)
You can submit your deposits 24 hours a day; however, deposits submitted after 4pm will not be reviewed and accepted until the next business day.
The Mobile Deposit app will process one check per deposit. A maximum of ten checks can be deposited per day with a combined deposit limit of $3,500.00 per day.
Helpful Tips on using Mobile Deposit
- Close all other apps running in the background on your mobile phone before opening the BCCU Mobile app.
- Flatten folded or crumpled checks before taking pictures.
- Place the check on a flat solid dark color background in a well-lit area.
- Try not to include too much of the background area surrounding the check.
- Be sure to keep all four corners of the check inside the green guidance lines.
- Keep the camera straight and level compared to the guidance lines.
- Hold the camera as square to the check as possible to reduce corner to corner skew.
- Endorse the back of your check with your signature, account number, and the words “Mobile Deposit only”.
