What is Mobile Deposit?

With Mobile Deposit you can deposit a check directly into your account using the Washington Gas Light FCU Mobile App on supported Apple and Android devices. Mobile Deposit lets you submit photos of the front and back of your endorsed check. Your deposit is safe and you can save time and money with fewer trips to our branch and/or less mailings of deposits.

How does Mobile Deposit work?

It’s secure and easy to use. Sign on to your WGLFCU Mobile app then:

  1. Select the deposit function.
  2. Choose the account where you want to deposit your check.
  3. Enter the check amount.
  4. Take a picture of the front and back of your endorsed check with your mobile device. For photos that work best, follow these guidelines:
    1. Place your check on a dark-colored, plain surface that’s well lit
    2. Position your camera directly over the check (not at an angle)
    3. Fit all 4 corners in the guides of your mobile device’s camera screen
  5. Submit your deposit.

Each check is considered a separate deposit. You can make multiple deposits in a single mobile session. There is a daily deposit limit of $4,000.00. This is subject to change.

What types of checks can I deposit?

You can deposit checks payable in U.S. dollars and drawn at any U.S. bank, including personal, business and government checks. They must also be payable to and endorsed by the account holder.

International checks, U.S. savings bonds, U.S. postal money orders, remotely created checks (whether in paper form or electronically created), convenience checks (checks drawn against a line of credit) and cash are not eligible for Mobile Deposit.

Each check is considered a separate deposit. You can make multiple deposits in a single mobile session. There is a daily deposit limit of $4,000.00. This is subject to change.
