Protect Your Bank Draft Like Cash
Bank Drafts are available to members at any branch location. It's vital that you treat your bank draft like cash once it is issued. Unlike personal cheques, Bank Drafts are guaranteed instruments, which means a stop payment cannot be placed on it and it cannot be cancelled.
When delivering your bank draft to the intended recipient, we strongly recommend that you personally deliver it, or that a trackable delivery method is employed, such as courier or registered mail.
