After receiving confirmation that the deposit was accepted, please store your check in a safe place for up to 90 days or until the deposit appears on your monthly statement. You are responsible for securely destroying the check or clearly marking it as “VOID” if you wish to keep it for your records.

What types of accounts can I deposit into?

Is there a limit to how much I can deposit in a day?

When will my deposit be credited or available?

Business days are Monday through Friday, excluding Argent holidays. Mobile deposits received and accepted by 2:00 PM on business days will generally appear in your account by 5:00 PM the same day. Mobile deposits received and accepted after 2:00 PM will appear in your account by 5:00 PM the following business day. Deposit amounts may be adjusted for up to 2 business days after the deposit is made. Funds deposited will generally be made available no later than 2 business days from the day of deposit. Argent may make such funds available sooner or may extend the hold period beyond 2 business days based on such factors as new accounts, large deposits, redeposited checks, repeated overdrafts, reasonable doubt of collectability and emergency conditions.
