Mobile Check Deposit

Deposit Your Checks With Your Smartphone

Life moves fast and we don't want you to miss a second of it. Mobile Deposit is the newest way we are bringing banking to you. No time to make a trip to the bank or ATM for a deposit? No problem. Now you can deposit a check just by using the camera on your smartphone1.

Our free Mobile Deposit for checks is an app-based deposit solution that lets qualified customers deposit paper checks by taking photos of the front and back with a smartphone camera.

Once your enrollment is qualified2, it’s easy to start making mobile deposits:

  • Complete and submit the enrollment form.
  • Download the First Commonwealth Bank Mobile Banking app for your iPhone or Android. Open the Mobile Banking app on your smartphone and click on the "Deposit" button.
  • Follow the prompts within the app to enter your deposit amount, take photos of the front and back of your check and then submit.
  • Submit your check by 7:45 p.m. EST and your funds will be available the next business day. (Please note – items you deposit today will not appear within online banking and mobile banking until the following business day.)
