I just found a paycheck from my old work that is dated August 5th, 2013. It's for over $300 and I'm wondering if it will still go through.
I'm worried that it will bounce or there will be some issue with depositing it. I'm also annoyed that the accountant didn't say anything for all that money that was missing... and the company was audited a few months later and no flags were raised.
Note: There is not a listed expiration on the paycheck, the company and I use the same bank (Wells Fargo), and we're both in the US.
It's Saturday March 1st 2014, over 6 months later, the bank is closed today, and I'm freaking out over potentially losing over 300 dollars.
My question is..
- Should it go through?
- If it doesn't, would it be wrong to ask my (old) work for the money?
EDIT: I decided to deposit it online (via mobile banking app) and I should get a response if it went through or not on Monday. It if doesn't go through then I'll take the next step and go to the bank to see what can be done.
UPDATE: It went through, no problems!
