Discontinuation of Check Deposit in Online Banking: November 1st

We’re excited to announce the launch of the new Online & Mobile Banking System on November 14th, with new and updated features and services such as unique Usernames, Secured Messaging, and a Touch ID log-in (for the Mobile Banking application). Please continue to log in to the current Online (Desktop) Banking system to review any updates or changes before launch.

The Online Deposit Feature in Desktop Banking Has Been Retired

In the current outgoing Online (Desktop) Banking System, you can create Online Deposits. You type in the amount and check number of each item to deposit. You then mail in your check(s) with the Online Deposit Transaction Number noted. The Online Deposit feature was retired at the end of the day on November 1st.

Alternatives to Online Deposits in Desktop Banking

We encourage members to download the free Mobile Banking application, available for iOS and Android devices. The Mobile Banking application supports free Mobile Deposits, which has advantages over the retiring Online Deposit system:

  • You do not have to mail in the deposited items. You will need to retain your deposited checks for two weeks before destroying them, but as long as there are no problems processing the image of the check, you don’t need to worry about it getting lost in the mail.
  • You may see funds available sooner. You generally will see holds released sooner on Mobile Deposits, as you do not have to wait for a check to arrive in the mail before it can be reviewed.

Additional options include Deposit-Taking ATMs or Shared Branches. You can locate convenient locations using the locator tool on our website, or through the Mobile Banking application.
