Ok, So wednesday (the 1st) came this past week, and I didn't get my check. Thursday, still no check. Went to the post office, the woman who delivers my mail (for the last 5 years) says she knows she put my check in my box. Now the VA is telling me I have to wait till Tuesday (the 7th) so they can trace it? Has this ever happened to any of you guys and how did it turn out? The VA rep told me that it would take about two weeks to get another check out to me. So I switched to direct deposit (which I should of done a while ago) hoping that they will just cancel the check and direct deposit it. I could see the two weeks if someone cashed the check and they have to deal with it, but if the check hasn't been deposited, idk why they can't just cancel and reissue. I know it wouldn't be that easy, but I wouldn't think it would take two weeks after I call on Tuesday. Thanks for any input.
