How long until a personal check is cashed before it's void?

I wrote a [rather large] check at the beginning of June that hasn't been cashed - is it voided after 90 days or something?

    Unless the check has an expiration date printed on it, it never officially expires. However, banks are never required to accept checks they consider 'stale'. Most banks use 6 months as the cutoff.

    Get a No Cost Background Check Scan at

    Its a sensible way to start. The site allows you to do a no cost scan simply to find out if any sort of data is in existence. A smaller analysis is done without cost. To get a detailed report its a modest payment.

    You may not realize how many good reasons there are to try and find out more about the people around you. After all, whether you're talking about new friends, employees, doctors, caretakers for elderly family members, or even significant others, you, as a citizen, have a right to know whether the people you surround yourself with are who they say they are. This goes double in any situation that involves your children, which not only includes teachers and babysitters, but also scout masters, little league coaches and others. Bottom line, if you want to find out more about someone, you should perform a background check.

    A check is considered stale-dated after 6 months from the date on the check. A teller should catch that before they try to cash it because stale-dated checked almost always get returned because of the date. Many business checks say on the front of the check if they are void after 60 or 90 days and many rebate checks don't even have a date they just say "void if cashed after XXX, 200X"

    According to Bank of America on September 10th, 2014, if you issued the check in good faith, regarless of age or any information on the front of the check, it can be cashed. Hey, it only took 7 years for the check to get cashed.....There is no such thing as "stale"

    According to, six months.

    "A bank is under no obligation to a customer having a checking account to pay a check, other than a certified check, which is presented more than six months after its date, but it may charge its customer's account for a payment made thereafter in good faith."

    Hope I could help!

    I think it's 60 or 90 days. One of those. Might depend on the bank.

    No, but I'd call who ever you wrote it to and ask why it has not been cashed.
