What is Check 21?

To make check processing faster, many banks no longer send paper checks to other banks to receive payment. Instead, these banks exchange payment information electronically.  Regulation Check 21 allows banks to take a paper check and convert into an electronic image file to be processed.


Checks that are processed electronically and no paper check is created, won't have any check image to view.


You can view your check images online through our Online Banking system.  Not only can you view the front and the back of the check, you can print out a copy of it as well.  Make sure you're enrolled in Online Banking so you can view your check images.
