I was just wondering, why is it that when you go to your checking account summary and where a check has been written it doesn't automaticaly place the Payee name in the Check Description? This would make it so much eassier to identifiy the check rather than first opening the check icon to view a copy of the check. I personally would love to see this instead of having to manually type in the name everytime. :-)
Just a thought and suggestion
1. When USAA processes a PAPER CHECK as a result of a DEPOSIT (like Deposit@Home, Deposit@Mobile, etc.), or as a result of a BILLPAY action, then the Description shown in the Transaction History will show either:
2. In either case, the CHECK ICON (noted by Red Arrow in figures above) will be displayed and when clicked on will display the CHECK (both front and back) which you can either save (image) or print.
3. Currently there is no way, other than manually, to change the Description of a PAPER CHECK.
4. Your idea of "Automaticaly place the Payee name in the Check Description" is a GREAT SUGGESTION.
Here is what I recommend.

Keep those ideas coming.
1. Q: "How far back are those images retained?"
As far back as the SEARCH FUNCTION will allow you. **(see Paragraph 3 below)

2. Q: "Can the information on the check scan be brought up by a customer service representative if it's no longer available on the normal customer portal?"
Two assumptions here:
3. Lastly, IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE, I do not know what USAA's retention policy is for Cancelled Scanned Checks, however in general the industry standard for Cancelled Checks (general, payroll, payroll-related taxes), also known as "truncated checks", is 7 years in accordance with the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), Article 4, Section 4-406.
Hope this helps answer your questions.
