How to Place a Stop Payment

2 minute read

Stop payments can be placed on certain types of checks and transactions. Here are the ways to place stop payments on your account.

Checking Account

If you need to stop payment on a check or checks for your WSECU checking account, you can take care of it through Online Banking. Here's how:

  • Sign in and click the checking account on the My Accounts page
  • The Stop Payment option is located in the right-hand box titled Stop Check Payment
  • Type in the check number 
  • Confirm the stop payment on the following page

Please note: If the checks were stolen or used fraudulently, give us a call at 800.562.0999 or visit your nearest branch and we'll help with additional steps to protect your account.

Cashier's Checks

We may be able to place a stop payment on a cashier's check if it was lost, stolen or destroyed and was issued in 90 days or more. Cashier's checks are considered guaranteed funds and stop payments are considered on a case-by-case basis. We'll need your signature to place a stop payment on a cashier's check. If you are unable to visit a branch, give us a call at 800.562.0999 and request the form to be sent to you by mail or email.


ACH transactions are set up using your account number and WSECU's routing number. You can place a permanent stop payment on these immediately by completing and signing the request form at one of our branches.

If you call, we can place a temporary 14-day stop payment and send the request form via mail or email. Once we’ve received the completed and signed form, we'll make the stop payment permanent.

Debit and Credit Cards

Stop payments can be placed on recurring debit and credit card transactions. Give us a call or stop by a branch to request a stop payment on a recurring transaction. Single debit or credit card transactions are not eligible for stop payments.

Fees may apply for stop payments – see our Rate and Fee Schedule for details.
