With the papers written on the check stub is the added information----
"A stop payment cannot be placed on this check for 90 days after the issue date unless the physical check is present at the time of request."
In the past, after a stop payment was made on a cashier check it would take another 30 days after a
stop payment was placed before a new check would be issued.
This is the 4th day and the receiving institution still has not received the check, though the receiving
institution has received mail from me mailed from the same city as the sending institution the next day. The sending institution is 1 block from the post office. I could have picked the check up and over-nighted both IRA's and the receiving institution would have had the check Tuesday had the law not changed.
I wonder how many late or lost checks there will have to be before Congress will pass laws that
would make it easier, faster, and safer so we can, if we want, make the rollovers ourselves and follow
the progress of the check to its destination on the computer.
