Top 5 FAQs

The easiest way to track your transfer is to sign up for SMS alerts to receive a text notification when your funds have been paid out. Message and data rates may apply. If you’re transferring with Ria, visit riafinancial.com or download the Ria Money Transfer app to track your transfer using your PIN number.  If your payment is through Western Union, you can track your money using your MTCN on their website or app too. If you’re sending a cash payment, you can also call your local store’s customer service.

This will depend on the circumstances. Call either Ria, Western Union or your local Money Services to find out whether you can cancel.

If you’re sending internationally from the US, you normally won’t be taxed. If you’re receiving money within the US, it’s unlikely you’ll be taxed but you’ll need to declare it to the IRS.

With Ria, you can send up to $5,000 within the US and up to $10,000 internationally, depending on your destination and delivery method. You can send up to $5,000 with Money Services and Western Union.

The best way for you to send money will depend on how much you want to send, how quickly it needs to arrive and how you want the funds to deliver. Speak to our in-store team and they’ll be able to help you with your transaction.
