Account Balancing and Research

Collection Services

Wouldn't it be great if every check you received was paid the first time through the system? Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Some checks are returned for insufficient funds or for other reasons. So what do you do to conveniently collect your money?

One method of attempting collection of those returned items is to bring the check to us for collection. We will send the check and a collection letter to the bank on which the check is drawn or hold it until funds are available if it is drawn on us. Typically we ask the bank to hold the check for 10 days to see if there are, anytime during that term, sufficient funds for the payment of the item. The bank holding the item will either return to us an official check if the item can be paid, or they will return the check to us at the end of the holding period.

Per item fees apply for this service. (Note: The receiving bank may also charge a fee for monitoring the account and issuing their official check.)

Money Orders

Both Bank Money Orders and Personal Money Orders are available.

Personal Money Orders – Need a one-time check to pay a bill or to move money? Never send cash. Use a Farmers Trust personal money order instead. Personal Money Orders are a convenient, inexpensive and safe method of payment used by many of our customers. Personal Money Orders provide a valuable proof of payment. As the purchaser, you keep one copy of the Personal Money Order for your records. The payee-endorsed original, once paid, is kept at the bank for an extended period of time. If the Personal Money Order is lost, it may be easily replaced without hassle for just the cost of a stop payment order.

Personal Money Orders may be purchased from any of our lobby tellers in any amount up to $5,000. A minimal fee is charged for each item issued.

Bank Money Orders - A Bank Money Order (also known as a Cashier's Check) represents guaranteed funds and is the much safer equivalent of cash. The Bank Money Order is ideal anytime there is an exchange of ownership interests or property title for the purchaser's payment. Selling a car or boat? Before you hand over the signed and notarized title, make sure you get paid. Payment by cash is fine but not really safe. Payment by Bank Money Order may be a much better alternative.

Bank Money Orders from Farmers Trust are available to both bank customers and non-customers in exchange for cash or other guaranteed/collected funds.

A word of caution: Bank Money Orders are not subject to a stop payment order and replacement requires a lost instrument affidavit and may require a lost instrument bond from your insurance provider. These items should be treated with special care because they may be difficult to replace.

Bank Money Orders may be purchased from any of our lobby tellers. A minimal fee is charged for each item issued.

Notary Service

Notary services are provided to both our customers and non-customers. For your protection, we may require proper identification with a photo and signature. All information must be completed on the document being notarized; however, do not sign the document until you are in front of a notary public. If you are unsure about what information is required on a document, please contact your legal counsel for advice. A minimal per document fee applies.

Stop Payment

If you have ever lost a check or if you have used a check to purchase a product or service that turned out to be misrepresented or defective, you know the importance of a Stop Payment Order. Call us as soon as you become aware of a problem, give us the necessary information, and we will add the stop payment order to our records.
