Safe Keeping and Imaging

Manage Your Cancelled Checks

Having your cancelled checks returned to you in the mail every month is a thing of the past. Now you can manage your cancelled checks in an easier, safer way with safekeeping and imaging.


If you typically don’t need copies of your cleared checks, safekeeping is a good option. With safekeeping, First PREMIER Bank keeps a record of your checks, and they won’t be returned in your statement. Instead, you’ll receive a listing of your cleared checks to reconcile your account.

Safekeeping is free with any First PREMIER Bank checking account and qualifies for free Online Statements.


If you’d still like to view images of your cancelled checks, you can choose imaging, where pictures of your cleared checks are included on image statements that are three-hole punched for easy filing. Your check images will serve as a permanent, legal record of the checks written and cleared through your account. Original checks will not be returned in your statement.

Imaging is free for all personal and business checking accounts with the exception of Free Checking, which has a $1 monthly fee.

Online Viewing

Whether you choose safekeeping or imaging, you can also view your cancelled checks online. Simply log into Personal Online Banking or Business Online Banking and click on the number of the check you’d like to view.
