Why am I unable to deposit my check?
There are a few common errors that may cause your check to be rejected:

  • Folded or torn corners
  • Front image is not legible
  • Amounts not matching
  • Routing and account numbers are unclear
  • No camera on the device
  • Image is too dark

Try using mobile deposit in a well lit area to prevent shadows and poor image quality. The check should be placed on a flat, dark surface. Keep your hands clear of the check while taking the picture.

How will I know when the check has been posted to my account?
After submitting images of the front and back of your check, you will receive onscreen confirmation that CornerBank has received your deposit. You also will have the option to email a confirmation number to yourself. Your check will be processed by CornerBank staff and memo posted throughout the day. All deposits made prior to 4:00 p.m. CST will be memo posted the same business day and you should see the deposit on your Online Banking after processing that evening. Please see CornerBank’s Funds Availability Policy for more information about deposits. Please do not dispose of your check or attempt to process at another institution or through another channel (ATM or in-branch). You should keep your check for 60 days and then destroy or shred it.
