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

  1. Ask the person sending you money for their MoneyGram reference number.
  2. 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.
  3. 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).
