How to Cancel a Money Order


Money orders are financial instruments that have a value equal to the cash paid for the document. As a result, canceling a money order requires that the instrument be returned to the issuer with a request for refund. Some establishments will not refund the face value without the original receipt, which proves you purchased the money order. In order to cancel a money order, you must first locate the original instrument and collect the required documents.

  • Get the original money order from the recipient, along with the receipt.

  • Go to the establishment from which you purchased the money order and request a money order refund form, if required.

  • Complete the form in its entirety and sign the document. You may need to include the serial number and money order amount.

  • Hand the documents to the sales representative along with your identification, if required. Most establishments require a nominal fee to refund the money order.
