How long after a mobile deposit is approved will it be available?
When you submit your check through a mobile deposit, you may be able to have access to some of the funds within a few minutes to the next day, depending on your bank or credit union. Some banks will allow a small amount of the money to be available before a check is cleared, usually around $200.
Your money is usually available within one business day, but it can take up to five business days. Every bank's policies differ on mobile check deposit timing. Some banks offer same-day or next-day mobile check deposits for a small fee.
For mobile deposits, the bank may notify you with a confirmation that the check went through. But the bank has the right to return the deposit even after the confirmation is received.
Generally, a bank must make the first $225 from the deposit available—for either cash withdrawal or check writing purposes—at the start of the next business day after the banking day that the deposit is made. The rest of the deposit should generally be available on the second business day.

The timeline of a check clearing
In general, you can expect most checks to clear the day after you deposit them, as long as you make the deposit on a business day and during bank business hours.
The safest and fastest way to get cash is to take your check to the check writer's bank. That's the bank or credit union that holds the check writer's funds, and you can get the money out of the check writer's account and into your hands instantly at that bank.
The money leaves your account immediately. It's usually available within 2 hours. For some banks, it can take up to close of business the next working day.
In order to receive funds the next day, they must be deposited before the bank's cut-off times for processing deposits. This can happen as early as noon at an ATM or other off-premises banking location, and as early as 2 p.m. at a branch, although cut-off times for mobile deposits can be as late as 5 p.m.

What time does a pending check clear?
Here's how long it generally takes for a check to clear: Usually within two business days for personal checks but up to seven for some accounts. Usually one business day for government and cashier's checks and checks from the same bank that holds your account.
Here are a few examples of how long pending transactions could take: In general, a cash deposit should settle by the next business day. A check deposit should typically post within two business days. An EFT processed through the ACH network may settle within the same day or could be settled in a business day or two.
Occasionally, your deposit may not show up as planned, because of a mix-up with the bank. You can look out for this by monitoring your account daily. When you make a deposit to your account, it should show up in your account history, even if the funds are not immediately available to you.
A bank may hold a check longer if it's an unusual deposit, such as if you've never deposited a check from that payer before. A check may take also longer to clear if it's for a larger amount or is from an international bank. Checks from foreign banks usually require longer hold times because they take longer to verify.
Your bank may hold the funds according to its funds availability policy. Or it may have placed an exception hold on the deposit. If the bank has placed a hold on the deposit, the bank generally should provide you with written notice of the hold.
