  1. How long is a Chase money order good for? My uncle in the US sent my daughter here in London a Chase money order for 20 dollars. It will cost more than that to deposit it in a UK account, so I have waited until a return to the US. How long do I have before the money order ‘expires’ if ever? It’s from May 2017, and it’s now October 2017. Thanks.

    1. The money order should be valid for 1 year. To be sure, look for special notes on the order itself or call Chase Bank.
