How long is check good before you cash it?
Ususally a check is good for about 30 days after it is issued...i don't know if it is an exact time frame but i would recommend cashing it before 30 days.
You can cash a check at your bank or financial institution so long as there is recourse in your account. If you don't have an account, try the institution the check is drawn on. If all else fails, I believe small loan companies like check and go or check into cash cash checks for a fee. Hope this helps (:
If the person wrote you check when they were alive and died before you could cash it, you should take it to their bank to see if the account is still open. As long as the account is open the assets are not frozen you should be able to cash the check. Otherwise, I'm afraid you may be out of luck. How about a railroad pension check directed deposited. he died on the 27 and…
A check that is older than 90 days (or 180 days depending on the Country) is considered a stale or expired check. It is worthless and carries no value. You cannot cash such a check. Since the check is expired, the check issuing bank will not pay for it. So the person has 90 (or at max 180) days to cash a check that is issued to him/her.
Yes, as long as you are cashing the check on behalf of the business (as a legal representative of the business) or if you are depositing the check into the account held by the business you can legally cash the check. No - of you are not a representative of the business or if you are trying to deposit it into an account that doesn't belong to the business.
