Prevent mobile deposit delays: The 3 ‘must-haves’ for endorsing checks
To prevent processing delays, make sure you include these three must-haves when you endorse the back of a check for mobile deposit:

  1. Sign it
  2. Write “For Mobile Deposit – AFCU”
  3. Write your account number

To help reduce fraud, we may be unable to process mobile deposits if any part of the endorsement is missing. If your mobile deposit is affected, we will notify you by email.
