You may get a Cashier’s Check from East County Schools by calling 619-588-1515, or by visiting an East County Schools Branch.
Funds are deducted from your account at the time the Cashier’s Check is issued. There is no fee for the issuance of a Cashier’s Check to a member with the following exceptions:
- the check is made payable to a third party*
- expedited delivery is required, in which case you will be charged for express shipping
We will mail the Cashier’s Check to your home address at no charge through USPS regular mail, upon request.
Sellers or landlords may ask for this kind of payment because it's guaranteed, since the funds are drawn against the bank rather than against your personal account. Providing a Cashier’s Check guarantees that the funds are available and the check will clear, and are therefore sometimes more acceptable to a payee.
*See Cashier's Check fees on our Rate and Fee Schedule.
Identity Theft Warning
Cashier’s Checks/Official Bank Checks have become a popular means for theft in recent years. If you receive this type of check in exchange for payment of cash, you must be wary of its source. These checks can look legitimate, yet they are actually a forgery.
