Can I make mobile deposits to my savings accounts with MCFCU?
Yes, you may make mobile deposits to any of your checking and savings accounts at MCFCU. Available accounts are limited to accounts available with your Internet Banking User ID.
When are funds available?
Deposits are subject to verification and follow the availability requirements outlined in your Account Disclosures under the heading “Your Ability to Withdraw Funds at MCFCU”. Checks received prior to the cutoff time of 3 p.m., on business days, will be processed on the same day. Checks deposited after the 3 p.m. cutoff will be posted on the following business day. Deposits will be available after they have been reviewed and posted to your account. Once the deposit has been received you’ll be able to view the pending transaction on your mobile phone under “View Holds” of the account specified in the deposit. Once holds are released, the funds are available for use.
What happens if there is an issue with the deposit?
Once you’ve made your deposit, you’ll receive a confirmation number within the mobile app. If issues arise that result in your deposit not being processed or delayed, or should we determine that we cannot process your transaction, you will see a negative adjustment on your account for the amount of the deposit. If you have questions regarding a mobile deposit, please call the Credit Union.

Are there any fees?
There is no fee from MCFCU for using this service, but we recommend that you check with your cellular service provider to see if data rates apply.
When I take a picture of the check, do I need to capture the whole check in my picture, or is it okay to just capture the amount?
The whole check must be captured. The app will prompt you to take a photo of the front and the back of each check that you deposit. The image of the check must be legible; if the quality of the image is poor, it will not be processed.
