    Answered . Many times it can take a few weeks to a month. Sometimes the release is "exchanged" for the check. Very broad spectrum of time. Do not hesitate in calling, being kind, and merely asking whether you can come and pick the check up, if the issuing company is close to you.

    In cases involving substantial sums of money, I often use a courier, or Federal Express, or someone in the office, to go pick up the check.

    Good luck.

    Answered . In these economic times, insurance companies are trying to hold on to money for as long as possible. The answer to your question depends on many different factors, including which insurance company you are dealing with who is your adjuster. The best course is simply to call the adjuster and ask. Who knows? your paperwork may still be sitting on his desk waiting to be completed.

    Answered . It varies. They can sometimes cut a check in matter of days, and at other times take months. It may be reasonable to use 30 days as a guideline. If you have not received the check in 30 days you should contact the adjuster and inquire.
