Circular 85-29

TO:

The Operations Officer of all
depository institutions in the
Eleventh Federal District
SUBJECT
Postal Money Order Revisions
DETAILS

The United States Postal Service (USPS) has requested that we inform
depository institutions of several changes to Postal Money Orders that soon
will be entering circulation.
Effective February 17, 1985, the changes are as follows:
°

Money orders will be issued with the maximum limitation value
increased to seven hundred dollars.

°

Limitation value will be imprinted on the back of the money
order.

°

The "Warning-Cashier" instructions on the back have been
changed slightly from those presently shown on the five
hundred dollar limit money order. In addition, the second
and third paragraphs regarding "Ownership, etc." and "Foreign
bank, etc." have been removed.

Over the next year, the Postal Service will continue to have in
circulation money order forms that have the five hundred dollar limitation on
the back as well as new forms with a seven hundred dollar limitation on the
back. For that reason, they are issuing the following cashing instruction
which is in addition to the "Warning-Cashier" instructions:
°

Do not cash a postal money order with the five hundred dollar
maximum limitation statement on the back if the amount to be
paid exceeds that maximum limitation.

For additional copies of any circular please contact the Public Affairs Department at (214) 651-6289. Banks and others are
encouraged to use the following incoming WATS numbers in contacting this Bank (800) 442-7140 (intrastate) and (800)
527-9200 (interstate).
