I still havent received my security deposit back after 21 days

Question Details: I moved out of my last residence on 06/27/09. I was paid up until 07/01/09. As of today it has been over 21 days and I still have not recv my deposit. I spoke with my landlord who told me it was addressed incorrectly, she advised me to check with my local post office and try and find it, this is not my responsibility, I have heard that if the deposit or letter is not received within 21 days , the full deposit must be refunded, is this correct?
