The laws differ from state to state, but the short answer is yes.

A postdated check offers the promise of controlling the uncontrollable: As time marches forward, you may wonder what the date on a check really does.

Unfortunately, the fact is that there’s generally no actual obligation to honor the date on a check.

Although it might not seem right for a bank or credit union to disregard the date written on a check, they aren’t legally required to honor the request to postpone processing a transaction unless certain conditions are met by the check issuer. recently learned this the hard way when her bank processed a postdated check several weeks before she’d intended. had sent the check to a car dealership to cover the remaining $1,500 payout resulting from turning in a leased vehicle ahead of schedule.

In notice about a postdated check before the check is received, then the notice is valid for up to six months.

That’s because once a check is signed it becomes legal tender, and, according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, banks and credit unions can generally use their own discretion when deciding when to process a check – all without regard to the check’s printed date.

The only way to possibly prevent a postdated check from being processed early is to let everyone involved know in advance — and in a format that goes beyond just postdating the check.

For instance, if you write a check on June 1 but date the check June 25, you are postdating the check.

If you won’t have the funds available at the time the check is written, you might consider postdating the check.
