Cashier’s Checks & Personal Money Orders

If you’re making a sizable cash purchase or transaction, a Cashier’s Check or Personal Money Order is a good option. Recognized and accepted as readily as cash by almost every store, resort or institution, they represent the bank’s obligation rather than your personal obligation.

Contact our Solutions Center to find the nearest notary public to you.
