Update: How to Endorse a Check For Mobile Deposit
July 19, 2018
When depositing a check using the NWB Mobile App, you must now include the phrase “For mobile deposit to Northwestern Bank only,” underneath your endorsement signature on the reverse side of the check.
If you do not include that exact phrase in your endorsement, your mobile deposit could end up being rejected. See an example below, illustrating the correct wording to use:
Prior to this change, it was not required to include the name of the financial institution (Northwestern Bank) on your endorsement. However, this new measure will help us provide an additional layer of protection against fraud and keep your information safer.
