    • This simple algorithm applies to all Nuffnangers upon cash out to figure out when your cheque will arrive. Last day of "cash out" month + 30 days processing period + 14th days approximate mailing time. Example: I cashed out on the 19th of July 2012. (31st July + 30 days + 14 days = Cheque will arrive on the 15th of September 2012)
