How do I pick up a MoneyGram money transfer?
To collect a MoneyGram electronic money transfer in Canada, go to any post office. You can receive up to $500 in cash, provided that funds are available at the post office. Otherwise, you will be issued your payment by cheque.
How to receive money
- Ask the person sending you money for their MoneyGram reference number.
- Visit your closest post office to pick up your money. Bring along your reference number and government-issued identification (such as a driver’s licence or passport). The name on your identification must be exactly the same as what the sender wrote on the MoneyGram form.
- At the post office, you’ll be asked to sign a form. Once complete, you will receive your MoneyGram by cash or cheque (or a combination of both).
