Deposit Acceptance


When you deposit a check using Mobile Deposit our image quality software reviews the captured check image and either accepts or rejects the image. The Mobile Banking software will prompt you to rescan the image immediately if not accepted.

Once the software accepts your check it will be routed to an INB representative for additional review. The deposit will show as pending in Mobile Banking until it is approved by the INB representative, after approval it will show as accepted.

If approved by the INB representative, and the mobile deposit occurred prior to 5:00 pm, it will be considered deposited that day. Your funds will generally be available for use the following business day. If the INB representative does not approve your deposit due to an issue with the check you will be notified by email of the reason. The deposit in the mobile banking application will then show as rejected.
