Remote Deposit Capture (RDC)

Remote Deposit Capture, or RDC, is a way to make deposits to your account using your smartphone camera and our CFDCU Mobile app. The ability to make deposits is part of a recent app update, so if you don't see that option, you'll need to update your app to the latest version.

Important Points to remember

  • Make sure that the check has been properly endorsed 'For Remote Deposit Only. Account # _______." Failure to do so could result in the check being rejected.
  • Deposits must be made by 4 PM. Deposits made after that time may not be reviewed until the next business day.
  • Even if the app accepts the deposit, credit union staff have the final say and may still reject the item.
  • If you are having trouble getting a good picture of the check, make sure that the check is laying flat, is the only thing in the picture, and that all the check edges can be seen.
  • After the check has been deposited via RDC, write 'Mobile Deposited" on the front and retain the item for at least 10 days.
