What is a Cashier’s Check?

The Difference Between Personal and Cashier’s Checks
  • A personal check is drawn on your account, but a cashier’s check is drawn on the banks' account.
  • A personal check has some security features, but a cashier’s check typically has more advanced features, such as watermarks or color-changing ink.
  • A personal check written for unusually large sums may be subject to additional scrutiny to prevent fraud, but a cashier’s check is generally accepted at face value once authenticity is determined.
