Can I cash my CERB cheque?

CERB cheque cashing

For some who receive a CERB cheque, it may not be practical to deposit it in a bank for a number of reasons.  Many people will look to cash CERB cheques.  First, CERB cheque recipients may need cash right away and may not be able to wait for the cheque to clear in their bank accounts.  Second, some recipients may not have bank accounts or access to traditional financial institutions.  Finally, there may be personal preferences to avoid the banks.

What should you do if you receive a CERB cheque and need cash right away?  One option is to cash your CERB cheque.  Here is what you should look for:

  • Look for the lowest rate possible.
  • Look for a reputable institution with physical locations.
  • Make sure you receive the cash right away.
  • Look for the lowest possible cheque cashing rate.
