What do I do if I lose a check?
If you’re certain that you’ve lost the check, you need to cancel it as soon as possible. Contact the person who issued the check to stop the payment, so no one else can cash the check.
If you have written a check that you suspect has been lost or stolen, you need to contact your bank to see whether it has been cashed. If it hasn’t, you can request them to stop the payment.
Should I use a check or money order?
The decision on whether you need to use a check or money order depends on what you’re trying to do and your financial circumstances. Some people may be hesitant to accept a personal check as the funds are not guaranteed. For things like bills, rent, or services, a money order may be the preferred choice.
Can I cash checks without a bank account?
Yes, you don’t need a bank account to cash a check. You can cash in your money at Money Services or load the value onto a prepaid card. You will need to bring certain documentation with you, like a valid form of ID.
Can anyone cash a check?
Yes, you are usually allowed to have somebody else cash a check for you. This may come in handy if you don’t have a bank account of your own. If you need to, it’s easy to sign over a check to somebody else.
