I get paid next week, but I am driving by the office this afternoon. Can I drop off a check today that has been dated for next week?
Absolutely not. We do not accept post-dated checks. If we receive one, we will send it back to the customer.
Often times, when the office staff has a stack of 500 payments to go through, post-dated checks can sometimes slip through the cracks and inadvertantly get sent to the bank for deposit. The bank will then reject the post-dated check, and the office staff will have to redo the deposit, and change the payment status in our system. This results in headaches for the office staff, the bank, and ultimately, the customer.
