Cashiers checks and money orders

Give yourself some options

Cashiers checks


  • You can request to withdraw your funds in the form of a, “cashiers check,” also known as a, “Credit Union 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 to the amount of a cashiers check.
  • You must specify who the cashiers check is being written to at the time of purchase.
  • If the cashiers check is being written out to yourself, there is no fee.
  • If the cashiers check is being written to someone else, the fee is $1.00.

 

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, and therefore is also sometimes preferred by some merchants. 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 cost $2.00.
  • If you are designated a, “Prime Time Member,” there is no charge to purchase a Money Order.
