- Fast and simple. Once you give it a try, you'll see just how simple it is and you'll wonder why you ever drove to the bank to make a deposit.

Here's How it Works
- Login to First National Bank's mobile app.
- Select the "Check Deposit" option from the menu.
- Choose the account into which you want to make the deposit.
- Endorse the back of the check with your signature and print exactly --- "For mobile deposit at FNB Ames only."
- Enter the check amount.
- Snap a photo of the front and back of the check using your phone or tablet. Just select the Front of Check and Back of Check buttons. It's important to make sure you get a clear image of both sides of the check. If the images are blurry, clean off your camera lens. And make sure you have good lighting so your camera can pick up details on your check.
- Verify the information is correct, and then select Submit.
You will receive an email notification confirming that we have received your deposit. While you may want to use the money right away, you'll need to wait for the check to post to your bank account first before accessing the funds. Mobile deposits made by 5 p.m. are typically available the next business day.
You must keep the check for 60 days after making your deposit. Only after the check posts to your bank account, should you write "VOID" on the check and keep for your records.
