Maybe a solution

I called the B of A about the medallion stamp so we could send in the check to be reissued in my father's name. I didn't want to carry them all the way out to the bank, only to have nothing happen again. SO I explained the problem and that person said to open a joint account for them online and add myself later on, then put the check into the bank via ATM. I said great, and opened the account, but then I remembered that my mom isn't capable of signing the check. So I talked to someone on online chat, and they told me it will take 2-3 business days, and then I can bring her into the bank and have her sign the check again, or make a mark on it. With any luck, this will work.

Yep. That's the solution. By the time Dad died, he, I, he and I, my mom, their trust--we all had eight accounts at Wells Fargo, all opened in an effort to get checks cashed.

Do you mean it only works once? AAGGH!

It just keeps getting crazier! Try to keep a sense of humor.

That's all I can do.
