What is a Returned Deposited Item (RDI)?

A RDI is a check that has been returned to a depositor because it could not be processed against the check originator's account.

Deposited items can be returned for many reasons, such as insufficient or unavailable funds, stop payment, closed account, questionable or missing signature, etc.

Funds from items you deposit are made available to you, even if the item you are depositing has not cleared the bank on which it was drawn. Thus, if any item you deposit is returned to us unpaid, regardless of why it is returned, we reserve the right to debit your account for the amount of the item plus any applicable fees.

If the check you deposit is returned because there are insufficient funds in the account on which it is drawn or for any other reason, you will be responsible for the amount of the check.

Within 7 business days, Santander mails a notice with the RDI to the customer, which includes the following information.

  • Amount that the Bank charged back to (i.e., deducted from) the depositor's account

For additional information about applicable fees and terms, refer to the Personal Deposit Account Fee Schedule or visit your local branch.
