    WalMart will charge you a few dollars. They are probably one of your least expensive options.

    Nothing can stop you from opening an account. You can take it to any check cashing service. A bank will not cash it unless you have an account with them though.

    Why can’t you open a bank account? I’ve had a bank account since I was 8 (with my parents too of course). There’s no reason an adult shouldn’t have a bank account. I suggest that if you’ve had issues with a bank that you either go to another one that’ll give you one or you use the money from your refund to pay back the bank if you owe them.

    Every self respecting adult needs a bank account.

    If not, go to a check cashing store, casino, bar or to walmart. They’ll change you a small fee for every check.

    Maybe you should use that check to pay back whatever you owe and get out of the Chex system so that you *can* open a bank account. It’s hard being an adult without one.

    they might, you may have to shop the banks in your area
    I understand Wal Mart cashes checks for people without bank accounts, and of course there are all kinds of check cashing offices

    You know what? This is to respond to all these people who don’t understand that sometimes things happen in life, even to ADULTS!!! For example, I had a bank account, good credit, etc… and then my NOW ex-husband destroyed everything I had worked so hard for. I am still correcting the financial mess he made of my life, including the fact that he ran up our joint bank account to the point where they had to freeze it. Yes, it is hard to be an adult without a bank account, and yes, I am a financially responsible adult. I am just now a single mother on a low wage job trying very hard to correct things, very slowly. So, to ALL you people so quick to judge….. try imagining yourself in a bad situation before you condemn someone.

    And good luck finding an answer to your question, epondel. I wish I had an answer that could help. Just know you aren’t alone….
