Can I Cash a Check Without a Bank Account?

Published by Scott Hershman

These days, checks are used for very particular purposes. If you haven’t received money by check in a while, you may be wondering where you can take it to turn it into cash. Those with a bank account have the option of depositing their check directly. If you don’t have a bank account—or need to receive your funds immediately—you will need another option for retrieving your funds.

Cashing a Check at the Issuing Bank

Each check is associated with a certain bank account. Though the issuing bank is not required to cash your check, many will cash checks written by their members. In some cases, the bank will require a small fee for this privilege, but many provide this as a free service. Depending on how far away the location is and how quickly you need the money, this may be a good option. However, some institutions may hold onto your funds for several days.

Cashing Your Check at a Currency Exchange

Many currency exchanges, including West Suburban locations, provide check cashing for your convenience. One of the advantages of taking your check to a currency exchange is the speed at which you receive your funds: immediately! Though West Suburban does not, many currency exchanges have limits for how large of a check they will cash, so it’s best to call ahead.
