Yes, thank you.
So, I guess the date is from right before it ships.

If someone wants to travel in the near future but needs to send out their active passport with the application for a new one, what do they do?

I have an appointment today but I realized I only have business checks, no personal.   They specify personal checks.  But will business work as well? Or I need to go get a money order?

I believe that's only the usps fee, for state department need a check. I also wouldn't try a business check, is hard enough to get passport now don't need another delay.

Is the appointment at the post office or at the regional agency?

Personal check means you do not need a bank check.

If they are not okay with the check you can always buy a money order at the post office.

I would just cross out the business name and write the name of applicant or parent.
