Remote Deposit Capture (RDC)
First United CU Remote Deposit Capture (RDC) is a secure and easy way to deposit a check from virtually anywhere, anytime. Our Remote Deposit Capture services are free for members and easy to use. You can make deposits in a snap with your iPhone® or Android™ device instead of waiting in line or driving to an ATM. Enrolling is easy and can be done right in our mobile app.
Due to a new banking regulation, all checks deposited via a mobile service must include:
- “For Mobile Deposit at First United CU Only” handwritten below your signature in the endorsement area on the back of the check or the deposit may be rejected.
Although some checks have a preprinted box to indicate mobile deposit, checking this box does not complete the endorsement requirement. “For Mobile Deposit at First United CU Only” must be written legibly below your signature.
Unfortunately, if you deposit a check through our mobile app without a signature or this endorsement, the check may be rejected. To help you avoid this situation, our mobile app will display a reminder message to include “For Mobile Deposit at First United CU Only” below your signature.
