  1. If the 2nd account you mentioned is with the same bank you can ask a banker to contact their exceptions department and have the check re routed to the open account. It can’t be done from one bank to a different bank.

    They will need the exact amount of the check and it should be done no more than 1-2 days after you expected it or it will get sent back to whomever wrote it.


  2. This happened to me, it was a checking account, an a pay roll check was sent to a account I closed. I called and was told that the check would go back to the sender and then the sender would in turn send it back to me. In it took around 2 weeks or more before I got the check to put in my account. It was a real pain and really mad me angry. Hope you have better luck.
