INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Uncollected Funds'

Uncollected funds are deposits that need to be reconciled; that is, the bank from which a check is drawn must acknowledge that the checking account has the funds to cover the check. Once the check "clears", the depositor can have access to the deposited funds. Until then, the funds are referred to as uncollected funds.
