Snap A Picture, Deposit Your Check Using Grow Mobile Banking

We know many members are expecting an IRS Economic Impact Payment, with most people receiving the funds through direct deposit. However, you will receive a paper stimulus check if you’ve opted for paper checks for tax refunds in 2018 and 2019, or if you haven’t provided direct deposit info to the IRS. Since staying at home is important during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we want to make sure you know about our easy remote check deposit feature. With the Grow Mobile Banking app, you can use your mobile device to deposit checks to your account.*

  • Open Grow Mobile Banking.
  • Select Deposit Check from the menu.
  • Endorse your check with your signature and “Mobile Deposit at Grow.”
  • Take a photo of the check front and check back, following the prompts.
  • Click Deposit Check.

That’s it! For most members, the money from remote deposits typically posts to your account within one to two business days, with at least $500 posting immediately.

We hope this simple remote deposit option will help you get access to your stimulus money quickly and safely, all from the comfort of your home. If you do want to visit a Grow location, our stores are open with standard business hours to serve you in-person. Drive-thru lanes are open, too!

Tips for depositing a check through the app:

  • Use clear writing.
  • Take the photos on a dark background in a well-lit place.
  • Close other apps running in the background for the best experience using our app.
  • Save the check in a secure location for 90 days, then shred it for safe disposal.
