How long does Cash App take to deposit your check?

The time it takes for Cash App to deposit a check into your account depends on the source of the check and the timing of your deposit.

Cash App claims US Treasury checks are usually available within one business day. However, for other types of checks, the processing time can be quite lengthy, potentially stretching up to a maximum of 15 days.

The timing of your deposit is also crucial. Cash App follows Pacific Time, with its business days ending at 4 PM. If you wish for your check to be considered as submitted on the same day, make sure to deposit it before this cut-off time.

Keep in mind that Saturdays, Sundays, and federal holidays are not considered business days, so the processing clock does not run during these periods.
