Changes in Mobile Check Endorsements

June 11, 2018

Effective July 1, 2018, any checks that you deposit using our First Mobile App or by Remote Deposit, require a special restrictive endorsement (in addition to your standard endorsement).
 
This means when you make a Mobile deposit using your smartphone you must include “Mobile Deposit FFNWB” on the back of the check when you endorse it. 
  
If you are a Business, and use our Remote Deposit service (with a Bank provided scanner), you must include “Remote Deposit FFNWB” on the back of the checks that you scan. 

See Example:

 Personal using First Mobile       Business using Remote Deposit Services


 
If the additional endorsement is missing or not machine readable on the checks that you submit, the deposit will be rejected by the Bank.  To avoid any delay in crediting your account, please begin using the 
required endorsement at your earliest convenience.
 
As always, if you have questions or would like additional information, please contact our Communication Center at 866-372-1200
