I was just wondering how long your bank puts a hold on checks. My Credit Union never but a hold on check until Feb. Really surprised they didn't before, they did for out of state, but not for very long. So today I go to deposit an in state check, but not local and they want to put a 5 day business hold on it!! Won't clear until 3/17! I figured three days, not 5! I need this show to go in by the 15th, so I thought I was safe depositing it today. If I thought it would be this long I would have asked her for a debit card, which actually I did, but she didn't want to do that and sent me a check. So just wondering how long you have to wait for an in state check to clear?? Kelly V.
