Expired postal order

I have a £20 postal order.

Trouble is, it has just gone past the 6 month period for paying in (It needs to be paid into a bank as it is crossed).

My question is, if I stick this in my bank will they still accept it?

If it's the old type Postal Order I think you will need to speak to your local Post Office Manager. I'm 95% sure these have now been cancelled, but you may still be able to pay it into your Bank Account, but best check first.

Postal Orders can be cashed at any Post Office™ branch for 6 months after the date of purchase. An attempt to cash a Postal Order after this 6 month expiry date will be at the Post Office™ Ltd's discretion.

It is the new cheque style one

I assume if I attempt to pay it into my HSBC account and it bounces I won't be charged?

I think you need to speak to R/M CS on:- 08457 740740 just to be sure.

Hi you need to send it to method of payment team, post office ltd, future walk, chesterfield. s49 1pf including a cover note. They will then deal with it as these are the redemption centre. Hope this helps.

Funny topic this, as I cleared out a drawer (as you do!) and came accross a postal order dated 30.4.07.

Assumed that was that, so put in the box ready to be shredded, its only for £2.00 but, figure its worth digging out of the 'to be shredded box' and posting off to the address mentioned by Lulu'sMammy. ;-)

Will do today. Thanks! :thumbsup:

This morning received a letter stating take this letter along with some ID to your Post Office and they will give you £2.00.

So thanks to Lulu's Mammy for the address! :-D

I have just returned home after going along to the Post Office with my letter, gave them a bill with my name and address on for ID and a store card with my signature on ID too.

The cashier requested a debit/credit card with my signature on, I showed her, she proceeded to write down my card number whilst I was protesting to deaf ears and she even said "don't worry they know all about everybody" (she claimed it was needed for the 'proof of ID shown' box on the reverse of the letter).

I insisted that she obliterate my number, at which she required further ID and wrote down my driving licence number.

I just want people to be aware that it appears to me that based on the conversation with and attitude of the cashier and her superior that the Post Office do not respect your security so beware and as Hubby says "she can spend all she likes on your driving licence!"
