Cashier checks are often used in situations that involve large purchases, such as real estate and brokerage transactions or buying a new car. Using cashier checks is one of the safest and most efficient ways to pay bills and maintain the security of bank protection. This is because the check is issued and guaranteed by Bank Forward, rather than the purchaser. Cashier checks are purchased using available or collected funds from your Bank Forward account, loan proceeds, a loan advance or cash.

A wire transfer, or electronic transfer of funds, is often the most expedient method for transferring money between bank accounts. Wires are virtually instantaneous, requiring no longer for transmission than a telephone call, and allow you to send money to financial institutions both in the United States and internationally.
Why send a wire transfer? When sending funds worldwide, wire transfer, done bank-to-bank, is considered the safest international payment method. Information contained in wires is transmitted securely through encrypted communications methods using our direct connection with the Federal Reserve's wire services.
If you need funds credited immediately, choose wire transfer and let your money work for you. Wires may only be made with cash or available funds in your account.
