I’ve been intending to cash a cheque for several weeks now but I kept putting it off. Yesterday I finally decided to grab it so I can deposit after work. I looked at the date and it’s now over six months old, which makes it a “stale-dated” cheque. I could try to cash it but a financial institution is under no obligation to honour it.
Now I gotta go back to the person who wrote the cheque in the first place to explain why I was dumbass and need them to re-write the cheque again. Here’s a pro-tip from me, deposit your cheques in a timely manner.
