Comparing dates in a stored procedure

I have a value in my database that represents an expire date.
Format is: 08/29/99.

How do I compare this to the actual date in a stored procedure?

Do I need to convert my expire date somehow before comparing it
to the value returned by getDate()?

thanks!

Correction: the expire date is in a datetime datatype.
Vi6 shows it in the format above, but a sql query displays it as: Aug 29 1999 12:00AM

no need to convert the date you have stored...

If StoredDate > GetDate() then
  date is in the future..
End If
