How will I know if Freedom Financial Bank received my deposit? When will my deposit post to my account?
Visit the Deposit History within the Mobile Banking app to see if your deposit has been successfully submitted.
“Pending” means the deposit has been received, but is still under review.
“Failed” means there was a problem with the transaction and the deposit was rejected.
“Accepted” means that the deposit has been received by us and is ready for processing.
Deposits made prior to 3:00 p.m. (CST) on a business day will be posted to your account on the day of deposit. If the deposit is made after 3:00 p.m. (CST) or on a weekend or federal holiday, it will be processed on the next business day. Once processed, the deposit will post to your account as a “mobile check deposit.”
Do I destroy my check after I photograph the deposit?

After which, securely destroy the check. Do not VOID the check after submittal in the event the deposit is not approved and needs to be re-submitted.
What if I submitted a deposit for the wrong amount? What if I submit the same deposit twice in error?
If you enter the wrong amount, the deposit will fail and you will need to do a new deposit with the correct amount indicated. If the same deposit is submitted twice, it will be identified and stopped by Freedom Financial Bank. Should this occur, you will receive a declined deposit notification for the second deposit received through the Mobile Check Deposit service.
