Cheque Clearing

Hi all

Might be a silly question but I have received a cheque from Halifax for PPI reclaim.

Now I want to pay this into my account in branch but I do not currently have a debit card as I am waiting for a replacement due to losing my old one (should arrive within 7 days).

My question is can I pay a cheque into my account in branch without presenting my debit card?

Also is it still the normal 2-4-6 clearing for a Halifax cheque paid into my Halifax account?

Thank you

    Yes, you can - with a pay-in slip. You can find a printed one in your cheque book if you have one or fill in a generic pay-in slip with your account details in a branch.

    .withdrawal, NOT withdrawel ..bear with me, NOT bare with me
    .definitely, NOT definately ......separate, NOT seperate
    should have, NOT should of
    .....guaranteed, NOT guarenteed
  • That's great thanks a lot!

    Does anybody know about the time for Halifax to clear a Halifax cheque - I would have thought it might be instant due to it being a cheque from themselves or am I wrong?

    It won't be instant. Standard 2-4-6 clearing process I'm afraid.

    The OP already stated they were aware of the 2-4-6 clearing cycle.
    Time is a path from the past to the future and back again. The present is the crossroads of both. :cool:

    Yes that's clear from their opening post. And that's exactly why I used the same 2-4-6 terminology without offering any additional explanation.

    My post wasn't intended to make the OP aware of the 2-4-6 clearing cycle, but rather to inform them that a PPI cheque from Halifax paid into a Halifax account would be subject to the same 2-4-6 clearing cycle and would not clear instantly.
  • PPI refunds are drawn normally on a head office account of the bank so will not instantly clear.
    Normal clearing cycle will apply.
