Effective July 1, federal regulators introduced a rule called Restrictive Endorsement (RE)
that impacts how you will need to endorse checks when making mobile deposits. 

 

If you do not complete the endorsement properly, you will receive the following error message:

Restrictive Endorsement error

Helpful Tips:

 The “For mobile deposit only” endorsement should be:

  • Written on the back of the check, in the area provided for the endorsement;
  • Printed legibly with dark ink;
  • Isolated and not overlap with other text, signatures, etc.;
  • On a single line.

 As in the past, please continue to sign the back of the check you are depositing.
