Most of the time you should be able to get a new check, if you make the request promptly, and the check you were issued has not been cashed. They may require you to pay the stop payment fee on the earlier check. Make your request quickly, because in many class actions, unclaimed money goes to charity or back to the defendant a certain amount of time after the checks are issued.
