Chime is a mobile banking app that offers a variety of features, including early direct deposit. If you’re a Chime user and you’re concerned about when your direct deposit will hit Chime, then you’re welcome to this MyBankGeek blog post.
In today’s blog post, MyBankGeek will show you everything you need to know about Chime direct deposit, when the Chime direct deposit hit on weekdays and on weekends. This will help you understand how the process work.
How Does Chime Early Direct Deposit Work?
Chime uses a process called ACH Same Day Settlement to make your direct deposit available sooner. ACH Same Day Settlement is a newer technology that allows banks to process ACH transactions on the same day they are received. This means that if someone sends your paycheck to Chime early in the day, your funds will be available in your account by 9:00 a.m. EST on the same day.
What Time Does Chime Direct Deposit Hit?
Direct deposits with Chime will be in your Chime account by 9:00 a.m. EST on your typical payday. However, this is the latest you will get your direct deposit with Chime, and often it will come at an earlier time.
If you did not receive your direct deposit by that time, you should not panic as there are a few reasons your direct deposit might not hit Chime by 9:00 a.m. EST. For example, if it’s your first direct deposit from a new employer, it may take a more time to process. Also, if your employer processes payroll later in the day, your direct deposit may not hit Chime until later.
What Time Does Chime Direct Deposit Hit on Wednesday?
Chime direct deposits hit on Wednesdays by 9:00 AM EST, the latest. However, it usually hits earlier, sometimes as early as midnight.
NOTE: The exact time that your direct deposit hits your Chime account will depend on when your employer processes payroll. However, as long as your employer submits your direct deposit by the end of the business day on Tuesday, it should hit your Chime account by 9:00 AM EST on Wednesday.
Does Chime Direct Deposit Go Through on Weekends?
No, Chime direct deposit does not go through on weekends. Direct deposits are only processed on weekdays, Monday through Friday. This is because the ACH Network, which is used to process direct deposits, does not operate on weekends.
If your payday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, your direct deposit will be processed on the next business day, which is Monday.
Factors That Determine When Your Chime Direct Deposit Hits
- The time of day your employer sends the deposit. Most employers send direct deposits early in the morning, but some may send them later in the day. If your employer sends the deposit late, it may not hit your account until the next business day.
- The day of the week your payday falls on. If your payday falls on a weekend or holiday, your direct deposit may be delayed until the next business day.
- Your bank’s processing time. Some banks process direct deposits more quickly than others. If you’re not sure how long your bank takes to process direct deposits, you can contact them to find out.
- Technical problems. If there are technical problems with the ACH network, it may delay your direct deposit. This is rare, but it can happen.
Reasons Your Chime Direct Deposit Hasn’t Hit
There are a few reasons why your Chime direct deposit might not have hit yet. Here are some of the most common:
- Your employer entered an incorrect date when processing your payroll. This is a common mistake, and it can cause your direct deposit to be delayed by a day or two.
- Processing is taking longer than usual due to holidays. If your payday falls on a bank holiday, your direct deposit may be delayed by one or two business days.
- The direct deposit request was accidentally submitted after business hours. If your employer submits your direct deposit request after 5:00 PM Pacific Time, it won’t be processed until the next business day.
- You’re new to Chime and this is your first direct deposit. It can take a few days for your first direct deposit to process through Chime.
- There’s a problem with your account information. Make sure that your employer has your Chime routing and account numbers correct. You can find these numbers in the Chime app under Settings > Account information.
- There’s a problem with your employer’s payroll system. If your employer is experiencing technical difficulties, it could delay your direct deposit.
If you’re still not sure why your Chime direct deposit hasn’t hit, you can contact your employer or Chime customer support for more help.
