Deposit check by mail, without deposit slip?

I have a check that's too large for mobile deposit, and I cannot get to a physical location or ATM.

 

I'm told that some banks will accept a check deposit by mail, without a deposit slip, if you endorse the check like soL

 

(your signature here)

For Deposit Only

(your account number here)

 

So, if I drop a check endorsed like that into an envelope, and mail to the following address - will USAA deposit it?

 

USAA Federal Savings Bank

Attn: Bank Priority Mail 9861

10750 McDermott Freeway

San Antonio, TX 78288

 

Thanks in advance!

CJU - We absolutely will accept a mailed, endorsed check with no deposit slip. For fastest processing, be sure your account number is clearly written on the endorsement. Additionally, you might be able to find an ATM location near you accepting deposits using the ATM locator tool at usaa.com/ATM and on our mobile app under “ATM Locations.” We will update the ATM locator with the new locations as they become available. I hope this has been helpful. Please feel free to contact us again with any questions or concerns. - Jason
 

I’m having an issue because I was told by the representative not to include my account number and I’m suppose to close on my home Friday. I don’t know what to do.

Can my check still be deposited without my account number being on the check? Or is there a way I could just pick up the check because I know if it has to be mailed back that it can take up to 10 business days....... I just want to be able to close on my home Friday..... Please help mex

That is a great question @Jones3 and congratulations on closing on your new home.  I have forwarded your inquiry to a bank specialist and will be able to assist as soon as they are available.  Thank you.  ~  Marco

Hey @Jones3, I will be more than happy to help! I think I may be a little confused. For a check to be correctly deposited into your account, it must be fully endorsed, which includes the account number for which the check should be deposited to. Please send us a private message with further details so that we can provide additional assistance.
