While Uber strives to make Instant Pay as reliable and instant as possible, some banks may still take 2-3 days to process an Instant Pay cash out. If a bank rejects a deposit, or it fails in the Uber system for any technical reason, the deposit will be returned in-app for you to cash out whenever you're ready or you can wait until the next weekly direct deposit. You'll also receive a notification in your Driver Inbox alerting you when a cash out was successful or unsuccessful.
