What Are Mobile Check Deposit Limits at the Top U.S. Banks?

Compare the mobile check deposit limits at the top U.S. banks, including daily limits and rolling 30-day limits.

Mobile Check Deposit

Mobile Check Deposit

Mobile check deposit, which lets you deposit checks by taking photos of them, has become one of the highly demanded features of mobile banking -- you might even want to switch banks to get it.

But, the deposit limits on this feature may sway the choice of the bank.

Unlike check deposits through a bank teller or ATM, mobile check deposits are subject to limits because of the heightened risk of check fraud.

Since customers can still hold onto a check after it is deposited through a smartphone, it is possible that someone may attempt to deposit the same check at multiple banks.

If you have to deposit checks in excess of these limits will have to resort to visiting a branch or ATM. These limits may also affect your decision of picking the best checking account for you.

For BB&T wealth management clients, the mobile check deposit limit is $25,000 per month.

Online Banks For Higher Limits From The Start

Online banks don’t operate large branch or ATM networks. Therefore, online-bank customers tend to rely heavily on mobile banking and mobile check deposits to manage their accounts and deposit checks.

If limits are too low, these customers would have to worry when they receive larger checks.

Luckily, many online banks understand this concern and offer higher mobile deposit limits compared to banks that have a physical presence.

See the mobile deposit limits of some of largest online banks:

Mobile Deposit Limits - Online Banks

Online bank Mobile deposit limit(s)
Capital One 360 $5,000 or 20 checks per day or $10,000 per month
Ally Bank $50,000 per day or $250,000 in a 30-day period
Bank of Internet $10,000 per day or $50,000 per 30-day period
TIAA Direct $30,000 per day or up to 6 checks per day
PayPal $5,000 per day or $10,000 per month

Note that many online banks will accept check deposits through the mail if you ever exceed their mobile check deposit limits.

Mobile Deposit Limits Can Always Change and Differ By Account

It is important to note the actual mobile deposit limits on your accounts can vary from the limits above.

Most banks reserve the right to change these limits for whatever reason. The factors may include account age, relationship status, activity, and account balances.

If you’ve made several attempts to deposit bad checks, your bank may decrease your mobile deposit limit and force you to visit a branch or an ATM.

In the worst-case scenario:

You might even lose your mobile deposit privileges.

Customers who have several accounts with the bank and maintain larger balances could be eligible for higher mobile deposit limits.

If you are using the feature regularly, your bank may increase your personal limits gradually.

<p>Interesting. I have a citigold account at Citibank and my daily mobile limit is $25,000 and my rolling 30-day mobile deposit limit is $50,000. I never requested an increase and this may just have to do with the particular type of checking account I have at Citi.</p>

<p>Mobile check deposit limits???<br>Banks don't want money???<br>This is crazy! This is 21 century after all. The age of the Internet, global real time video conferencing - for free!<br>Anyone who believes in this lame explanation of "the heightened risk of check fraud" should visit, without delay, local shrink. How is it possible to use ATM and in instant have record of a account updated? Or buy/sell stocks and have instant update of account balance but somehow it is impossible for the bank to record the info of the deposited check and refuse a subsequent same check deposit?</p>

<p>Chase changed only recently to these limits. Last year I was able to deposit 2450 every 2 weeks via mobile app. My disability restarted after 6 months of being back at work and I went to my mobile deposit and was unable to do so today. I see your comments from 2 yrs ago, they just changed this year.</p>

<p>Note that banks may have different mobile deposit limits based on your account history and relationship with the bank. Your limits may not be the same as the limits on another person's account. Additionally, banks may (and have) changed their mobile deposit policies occasionally.</p>

<p>This is so dumb, I think it is hilarious that none of these comments talk about other people making deposits in your account. The Bank Secrecy Act was set up for the IRS and $10K cash limit to prevent money laundering. That seems reasonable and has always been that way, for a bank to make sure someone can't deposit $501 cash in your account is just plain dumb. Just so we're clear this is a US Bank policy not an FDIC or Bank Secrecy Act policy. I had to make a deposit in someone's account for $1500 when I found this out, all I did was go to 3 different branches, making the $500 deposit, all within a 5 mile radius.</p>

<p>U.S. Bank does not operate any branches in New Jersey or New York. The locations that show up for you in a Google search are their corporate offices.</p><p>All banks require you to be an accountholder in order to use mobile check deposit. Another option you can consider is to use a check-cashing service (e.g., Walmart), but note that you will have to pay a fee for this service.</p>

<p>Hi, does anyone have US bank (U.S. Bank) and know if there are any in NJ or NY? On there website, where you can search for ATM or Branch, after entering my North Jersey zip code only a ATM 90 miles away in PA showed up. When I googled U.S. Bank with my location it shows there are several in manhattan. I do not want to take a trip to the city and it is the wrong bank. I need to deposit a check but I only have a pre paid card and there are limits to the amount you can deposit on the mobile check deposit feature. If there are any legit sites that do mobile check deposits with a limit that is not a small amount for non account holders let me know. Thanks.</p>

<p>If you deposit a check by mobile check deposit during business hours the funds are available the following business day. If you make the deposit after business hours it will typically get pushed to the following business day. Standard funds availability policies are to make the first $5,000 of any deposit available the next business day and anything over $5,000 is held for an additional 5 business days. <br>Most Mobile check deposit limits are below $5,000 anyway.</p>

<p>Hi Simon. A quick question, hoping you might help. I deposited a check exceeding $5k my bank did the standard $200 then gave me 2 availability dates the first being 2nd day after deposit was made which is more than half of the check amount and the remainder about 5 days. Is there a specific time or a approximate time they are released on the day of availability? Or is it at 12:01am on the date given from the bank?</p>

<p>Jeff, this story is on our list of articles to update. Personally, I haven't noticed any noticeable trend with the increasing of mobile deposit limits from the major banks. However, I have noticed that some online banks changed their mobile deposit limits -- Ally increased it from $50,000/day to $250,000/30 days in 2014 if I recall correctly.</p>

<p>Hi Simon, Any chance you might take an updated look at mobile deposit limits? With the growth of mobile deposit in the last 2 years, I wonder if banks are easing up on the deposit limits as they become more comfortable with it, and as more consumers are viewing it as a key feature.</p>

<p>Daniel, couldn't agree more. I've found myself wanting to deposit larger checks and often getting hit with the warning that I have to visit an ATM or branch instead.</p><p>I think banks will eventually ease up on their mobile deposit limits but given past evidence of how long banks to implement changes, it's likely to be a while before that happens.</p><p>I'd like to see banks take things such as account age, account balance and number of accounts into consideration when determining mobile deposit limits.</p>

<p>Hi DanielH, just curious, did you close your account at Ally because of the daily and monthly deposit limits?</p><p>I'm sure many agree with you that limits on deposits are ridiculous, given that it's THEIR money. Unfortunately, Uncle Sam always has his eye on you, and the government has rules, in particular, the Bank Secrecy Act, which says banks have to report such large transactions. (It was created to prevent tax evasion and money laundering.)</p>

<p>note that mobile check deposit is NOT available with the Citibank app for iPad. I downloaded the app today and could not find the functionality, so I chatted with a customer service rep named Sylvia. she indicated that their technical team is working on the functionality but they could not provide an estimate as to when it may be available. i advised her that the Citibank website should be updated as it leads you to believe the functionality IS available but she did not respond to that statement.</p>
