How long does it take for a certified check to get into your bank account?

My dhs grandma said she felt the need to give us a check because she paid for her other grandkids to go to college but never gave dh anything. So she is sending us a 5000.00 check I believe she is doing this because she knows she won't be around much longer she is 87. She is mailing it and it is certfied

  • So are you asking how long certified mail takes? 3-5 days.
    Or how long a certified check takes to clear? Ususally with a phone call to verify so less than 24 hours.

  • As little as a day, for certified checks usually, at my bank. Most likely on more than about 3 days.

  • Usually banks hold checks larger than a certain amt. They might let you take a hundred dollars up front. My bank had a 3 business day policy for large checks.
