Cashier's Checks

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.

    I've bought three cars through the credit union. They make it very easy, very simple, and you can't beat the interest rate. I highly endorse them, their friendly staff, and the service that East County Schools gives its members!

  • ECSFCU is big enough to approve loans with great rates and small enough to provide personal service and products that are important to the educational community.

  • We bank with East County Schools Federal Credit Union and learned they also have a great car buying service! We decided to look into it and ended up with the best customer service, an amazing price, no hassle of going to the dealership, and a brand new 2017 Honda Accord Sport! A year later, we were in need of another car for our growing family. It was an easy decision to go with the credit union and New Cars Inc again. The process and customer service didn’t disappoint once again, and we love our new 2018 Honda CRV! A big thank you to New Cars Inc and ECSFCU!
