Cashiers Checks


  • You can request to withdraw your funds in the form of a “cashiers check,” which is a check guaranteed by the Credit Union (unlike a personal check, which is guaranteed by the person writing the check). Cashiers checks are therefore sometimes preferred by some merchants over a personal check.
  • There is no dollar limit on the amount of a cashiers check.
  • You must specify who the cashiers check is being written to at the time of purchase.
  • There is a $1.00 fee for cashiers checks, unless they are being written out to you, in which case they are free.

Money Orders


  • You can also request to withdraw your funds in the form of a “money order,” which is also guaranteed by the Credit Union.  While you do purchase a money order for a specific dollar amount, it is different than a cashiers check in that you do not have to specify who it is being written to at the time that you purchase it.
  • Each money order may be written out for a maximum of $1,500.
  • Money orders have a $2.00 fee associated with them.
  • If you are designated a “Prime Time Member,” there is no charge to purchase a money order.
