Frequently Asked Questions About Check Cashing 

What is check cashing?

Check Cashing refers to just that, cashing your checks. 

Not every payment you receive can be deposited directly to your account and not everyone has a bank account. 

For this reason, check cashing is an important service to provide in our local communities, so that you can always get your money no matter the form it comes in.

What are the check cashing fees?

Our fees are based on the type of check that is cashed. 

Our rates start as low as 1.99% for in-state payroll and government checks. That means for payroll and government checks it only cost about $2 per $100.

What information do you need to cash a check?

We have you fill out a quick application and you need a photo ID.

Do I have to wait for the check to clear to get all of my cash?

No, once we have verified the check we give you all your money right then.

Is there a limit to the check amount?

No, as long as we can verify it, we can cash it.

What Kinds of Checks Can You Cash at Check City?

Payroll Checks

Payroll checks are also known as paychecks. They are the checks you receive from your place of employment on payday. 

Not everyone uses direct deposit for their paychecks and that’s ok! Instead you can just cash your paychecks directly at a Check City store. 

Cashier’s Checks

Cashier checks are checks that are guaranteed by the bank. Normally when you pay someone with a check, the amount you write on the check isn’t taken out of your bank account until the person receiving the check decides to deposit the check. 

But with a cashier’s check, the bank will take the check amount out of your account immediately, so you don’t have to wait for the person receiving the check to do so. Basically, you pay the amount you want on the check to the bank and then the bank prints out the check for you to give. 

This way, when you give the check to whoever you intend, you are giving them a check from the bank not from your own account. When they deposit the check, it will be paid by the bank, not from your account. 

Counter Checks

Counter checks are personal checks that a bank will print out for you when you need checks for immediate use and don’t want to wait for a new checkbook to come in the mail. They are the checks that your bank prints out and gives to you for your own personal use. 

Government Checks

Government checks include any kind of check given to you by the government. These can include checks for financial aid, social security checks, unemployment benefits, food stamps, and any others given to you by the government or government programs.

Insurance Drafts or Checks

Insurance drafts are checks given to you by your insurance company. Insurance companies give insurance drafts or checks after they agree to settle a sum of money after an insurance claim or incident. 

Money Orders

You may receive a money order when someone uses Western Union to send you money. Rather than sending money or checks through the mail you can use Western Union to send money to someone in a safe and secure way. These kinds of money orders can be cashed out at our Check City stores.  

Tax Refund Checks

After filing taxes each year some people qualify to receive a tax refund or rebate for paying more in taxes over the past year then they needed to. You can get your tax refund in the form of a check in the mail. 

Personal Checks

Personal checks are checks from someone’s personal checkbook. 

Out-of-State Checks

If your bank doesn’t exist in the state that you are in, then your personal checks from that bank may be considered out-of-state checks and may be difficult to cash anywhere.
