Default standing order banking issues

Can anyone tell me how the banks operate over there. Got a joint bank account with my dad, his uk pension is now going direct into account. Noticed that it went in as so 4 of april still has not cleared. The post was taking so long for his pension check to arrive.Thought it would be easier direct debit thought it would of taken about 3 days to clear. Teller told international checks take 6 weeks to clear this turn out to be 14 days to clear contacted private pension company and explained everything is so long winded.

Default Re: standing order banking issues

can't help with that type of standing order, but can tell you that it takes 3 days for a local check written on another bank check to actually be credited to my account.. (ie.. Royal Bank of Canada check, deposited on my CIBC/First Caribbean Bank on Monday, doesn't actually become available to me until maybe Thursday.. so no telling how long this actually takes if being send from the UK..
