Why was a hold put on the check I deposited?

We place holds on deposited checks to protect your account in the event that check is returned unpaid. Each case-by-case check hold is determined by the check that is being deposited and your account relationship with DCCU.

Our staff looks at each situation diligently for reasons NOT to place a hold because we know you want access to the funds as soon as possible.

Here are a few ways you can avoid a hold on your deposited check:

  • Have your payroll deposited directly to DCCU
  • Have matching funds already in your DCCU account
  • Use additional DCCU services such as loans
  • Deposit funds in the form of a cashiers check
  • Bring your paystub if it’s a non-local payroll

Regretfully, in some cases, it is not possible to avoid a hold.

  • Insufficient funds in the account at the time of card use would cause your purchase to be declined.
  • Debit cards are monitored for fraud activity just like your credit card. The fraud department will try to contact you to verify the transaction. Make sure your phone numbers are up to date at the credit union so we have the right number to call.
