"Dinero Seguro" Lets Families Send Money Back Home Securely
Washington, DC - The holidays are a time for families to share and celebrate together, regardless of the miles that may separate them.
This also is the time of year when families send money back home to countries outside the United States.
The U.S. Postal Service offers Dinero Seguro (Sure Money), providing customers with an affordable, convenient and safe method of transferring money internationally. Customers can send up to $2,000 per transaction per day, available in 2,800 participating Post Offices across the country. Identification is required for transfers exceeding $1,000.
The system uses secure, electronic wire transfers between the Postal Service and thousands of participating bank branch offices in destinating countries. The recipient’s funds are available within 15 minutes, guaranteed, and without hidden or additional fees.
Personal identification also is required for the recipients of funds in the participating country. Recipients do not need bank accounts and pay no additional fees in their country.
“Postal money orders have long been a preferred way for people to send money to friends and relatives internationally. Dinero Seguro provides an electronic alternative that reduces the time it takes to receive the funds from days to minutes,” said Anita Bizzotto, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President.
