Cash Alternatives

Sometimes carrying cash or cards isn't your safest option. We offer cash equivalents that can help you travel or mail money safely.

Traveler's Express Money Orders

You can write these money orders in amounts up to $1,000 to whomever you choose, and 100 percent of the value will be replaced if the money order is lost or stolen. This is an easy payment method for members who prefer not to send personal checks.

Fees: $2 for each money order


Official Checks

Issued by Traveler's Express, these are the official checks of Security Service. They must be made payable to a person, business, or estate. When required, a stop-payment can be placed if the check is lost or stolen.

Fees:

  • $3 for each check purchased
  • $10 when a check drawn from a Security Service account is converted to an Official check for a non-member
  • $5 for a stop-payment

U.S. Savings Bonds

NOTE: As of January 1, 2012, U.S. Savings Bonds are only available for purchase electronically and are only sold online at treasurydirect.gov. However, we do provide the service of cashing bonds.​
