Deposit Anywhere

What is Deposit Anywhere™?

It's a handy feature on our mobile banking app, ACU Anytime™. Now, you can deposit a cheque just by taking a photo of it using your mobile device, and sending it to ACU from anywhere, anytime!

I could use that! So how do I get it?

It's built right into our ACU Anytime™ mobile app.

How does it work?

Depositing a cheque has never been easier. Just open ACU Anytime, tap the Deposit button, select the account you’d like the funds deposited to, enter the amount, take a photo of the front and back of the cheque using the camera on your device, confirm the details and tap Submit. The funds will be deposited securely into your account. In the rare event that there's an issue with the deposit, we'll be in touch.

But what if I enter wrong amount by mistake?

Never fear, we double check all the information you gave us in order to ensure the right amount is deposited quickly and securely into your account. If you do have any questions about the cheques you submit, please get in touch with us.

Can I use the funds right away?

Depends; similar to deposits you make at an ATM or in branch, there are often holds on items and so the funds could require time to clear.

Is depositing cheques with a mobile phone safe?

You bet. Deposit Anywhere is built and operates on the same exacting standards of security as our mobile and online banking does.

Any fees for using it?

Nope, nothing. Zero.

What types of cheques will you accept?

Cheques payable in Canadian dollars and drawn at any Canadian financial institution. They must be payable to, and endorsed by you, the account holder (i.e. no third party cheques).

Do I have to mail you the cheques afterwards?

Once you've submitted the cheques using Deposit Anywhere, you don't need to send them to ACU.

What should I do with my paper cheques afterwards?

Destroy them after 90 days.
