Deposit Pending / Pending Review / Under Review / Submitted: The images of the deposit have passed the initial quality test. The deposit is undergoing additional review.
Deposit Accepted: We have completed our review of the deposit and it is being processed. Please note the deposit statuses will not update from Pending to Accepted until after the processing cutoff time of 4:00 PM CST on business days we are open.
Deposit Failed: The image was rejected. There are several reasons this may occur including poor image quality, duplicate item, or insufficient information on the check. If a deposit is initially Pending and switches to Failed , it means it did not pass our final review. If an item is rejected after being in Pending status, you will be notified via e-mail.
These statuses only indicate the status of the item in the Mobile Deposit process. If an item is in Accepted status, it will be sent through the check clearing system and may still be subject to a return.
