Making Deposits
  • To ensure same day credit, deposits must be received at the bank by 6pm.
  • Please include an adding machine tape listing each individual item when your deposit includes more than 10 items.  Stack items in the same order as on the tape.
  • All items must be endorsed properly including the name of the business and the signature of an authorized signer or for your convenience, an endorsement stamp may be ordered directly from the bank.
  • An item may only be deposited to an account with the same titling as the payee on the item.  If the business is operating under an assumed name, the account must also reflect the assumed title name.
  • Deposit slips must be completely filled out.  Please list currency & coin (never leave blank when depositing cash). To save time, please have currency separated by denomination and facing in the same direction.
  • Please use black permanent ink when writing out checks or deposit slips.
Check Cashing
Lake Elmo Bank does not cash third-party checks for non-customers.  Your employee must present a valid government issued picture ID or a resident alien card when cashing payroll checks.

Change Orders
If you require a special change order, you may call ahead so that the tellers can prepare it for you.

Locked Depository Bags
For added security, locked bags are available at an additional charge.  Locked bags may be dropped off at the teller counter or through the night depository for pickup at a later time.  This works well with larger transactions.
