Do you have to cash a check within a certain time, or is there no time limit?

I am asking this because I have a check that I received in the mail, but I don’t really want to cash it. I want to save it. I think it would be a bit easier to save money if it were in checks instead of cash.

Can I do this, or do checks have some kind of expiration date (in the US)?

Answer #1

Usually after six months a check expires

Answer #2

Personal checks r good for a yr and others r usually 6 months unless otherwise stated

Answer #3

I would cash the check, then get a money order made with it. That way it still isn’t in cash form which may tempt you to spend it. This is how I saved up to buy my first car!!

Answer #4

Answer #5

Wow, that’s a great idea! Thanks! :-)

Answer #6

Answer #10
