comment How do banks handle post-dated checks deposited via the ATM?
@John Banking is a regulated industry. Regulations and hence practices vary by country. This is a personal finance site, for you to ask about your finances, and presumably you bank in one country. That's why we ask for such detail when it is highly likely to matter. But who am I to know the practices around here? :)

comment What investment options should I pick for my superannuation/retirement investments?
Specific recommendations are off-topic. Suggest you reformulate your question, lest it be closed. Focus on asking about the why, not the what. See also What is the best asset allocation for a retirement portfolio, and why?
