The SNB SD Mobile App will not allow you to make a deposit greater than $2,500. 

The daily limit is also $2,500 or 10 deposits per depositor (not account). This limit is based on approvals, not submissions.

There is also a multi-day limit of $5,000 or 200 deposits per depositors, over a period of 20 business days.

Can I photograph more than one check at a time?

No, you may only photograph one check per deposit. 

How do I endorse my check for Mobile Deposit? 

You should sign your check with the following endorsement: 

First/Last Name Signature
"For Mobile Deposit at
Security National Bank only"

How will I know if SNB received and processed my deposit?

You will receive a notification by e-mail when your deposit has been received. 

Once your deposit is received, you will receive a second e-mail notification regarding the status of your deposit. This e-mail will indicate if the deposit was approved or declined for processing. If declined, a reason will be provided. 

If there is any problem with with the verification of your deposit, you will receive an email from Security National Bank.

When will my deposit post to my account? 

Deposits can be made with Mobile Deposit at any time, however check deposits are subject to verification and not available for immediate withdrawal.

Any deposit received after 4 p.m. from Monday through Friday will be processed the next business day (excluding holidays) — unless a hold is applied.

If a deposit is held (or a hold is applied), funds are posted to your account but not immediately available for debits or withdrawals.

What if the check image I photographed is bad? 

You have the option to retake photographs of the check before submitting or you may cancel the deposit. Be sure to place your check on a flat surface with a dark background and good lighting.

If you are unable to photograph a clear image, please mail or deposit the check at your nearest SNB location.

What should I do with my check after I deposit it?

Keep the check until you receive the email confirmation that your deposit has been approved, and you can verify the deposit to your account. Once you receive the email confirmation and verify the deposit to your account, you should destroy and dispose of the physical check.

What if I submitted a deposit for the wrong amount?

You do not need to resubmit your deposit. After the check clears, you can then transfer the funds to the correct account using online banking, the SNB SD Mobile App or in person at the nearest SNB location. If your deposit needs to be resubmitted, you will be notified by Security National Bank. 

What if I submit the same deposit twice in error? 

If the same deposit is submitted twice, it will be identified and stopped by our processing. Should this occur, you will receive a declined deposit notification for the second deposit.

A check I submitted was returned, can I resubmit it? 

If a deposit is returned, please do not re-deposit the check with the Mobile Deposit functionality. You will receive written communication from the bank through the US Postal Service if a deposit is returned. 

Can I see my Mobile Deposit history?

Yes. To access, select the “Recent” option on the bottom SNB SD Mobile App menu. Here, you can access a chronological list of all your historical transactions. Selecting an individual deposit will provide even further details including dates, amounts, processing status and check images.

Is there a fee for using mobile deposit?

There are no fees for SNB customers to use the SNB SD Mobile App or Mobile Deposits. However, some SNB accounts may incur general fees that are unrelated to the Mobile App. Also, you may want to check with your wireless provider about carrier and web access charges.
