How will I know if my check was deposited successfully?

- Make sure there is space between the MICR line and the edge of the image
I accidentally deposited the same check at the branch or ATM, what happens now?
If you accidentally deposit the same check more than once, your account will be adjusted accordingly. It’s important that you contact the Credit Union right away to advise us of the error, to avoid any unnecessary fees and maintain your Deposit Anywhere privileges.
