Cashier's checks are guaranteed to be good because they are drawn against the Credit Union's account. To take out a cashier's check, you give the teller money for the amount of the check, along with your name and the name of the recipient. The teller makes out the check, signs it, and gives it to you.
Some recipients may want assurance that your check is valid, especially if it's written for a large amount. Certified checks, which are personal checks the Credit Union guarantees it will honor, work well in these kind of cases.
After you write the personal check, the teller stamps it "certified" and then puts a hold on your account for the amount.
Money orders are useful if you don't have a checking account, or you don't want to write a check. SRFCU charges only $2.50 per money order, making them one of the least expensive guaranteed payment methods. To take out a money order, you pay the teller the amount of the money order, plus the $2.50 fee. The amount is printed on the money order. You then fill out the requested information, sign it, and send it.
Although a money order is convenient, it does have certain limitations:
