Certified Cheque

Designed for owners who require verification of funds when making purchases, payments or sending funds via mail.

A certified cheque is one issued by an Teachers Plus Credit Union member or non-member, where the funds are guaranteed to the payee by the branch on which the cheque is drawn. When certifying a cheque drawn on a Teachers Plus Credit Union member the signatures and funds are verified, funds (if available) are withdrawn from the account, and a “certified” stamp is placed on the face of the cheque. If funds are not available the cheque cannot be certified. A member or non-member may request that a cheque written on a Teachers Plus account be certified.

  • Cheques cannot be certified on U.S. accounts or on a Canadian account in US funds.

  • Certified Cheque fee applies.
