Helpful tips

Similar to deposits at an ATM or in the branch, standard holds on items apply and the funds will require time to clear.

You can deposit cheques payable in Canadian Dollars and drawn at any Canadian financial institution. They must be payable to, and endorsed by, the account holder. There are no fees to use this service.

In the rare circumstance that there is an issue with the deposit after you receive confirmation during the deposit process, you will be contacted by an SCCU Advisor.

Once you have submitted the cheque(s) using Deposit Anywhere, we do not require you to mail a physical copy of the cheque to the branch. Instead, complete the following:

  • Write "deposited" across front of cheque
  • Store it for 90 days (no need to send it to us)
  • Destroy the cheque between 90-120 days

Looking out for your safety & security

Sometimes mistakes happen, however we always verify and cross-check all details to ensure the correct amount is deposited quickly and securely into your account, just like we do if you deposit through an ATM.

If you have any questions about the cheques you submit, contact us and we'll be happy to assist you.

As a feature of our Mobile App, Deposit Anywhere meets the same high standards of security as our mobile and online banking services.
