I haven't read all the posts, so sorry if someone has already brought this up. DH worked at a bank for 5 years. They are one of the few that most checks are immediately available for withdrawl. Most banks make you wait until the check has been posted to the check writer's bank to make sure the check does not bounce. Note to the wise - If the person writing you a check is questionable or if you need the money immediately and are unsure of your banks policy (or if you know who won't be able to access it immeidately) go to the check writer's bank and cash it. The only crappy thing about that is some banks now are charging for cashing a check even if the check belongs to that bank unless you are a member. Stupid isn't it.
