Mailing checks ?
What is the safest way to mail a large value personal check ?
If I were mailing a check to an employee, I would use a registered service, like USPS 2-day priority mail. I would pay the small extra fee to make sure it’s signed for. That way you can track to see that the payment arrived. Then call to see if the person got it.
If not, you can contact the bank and cancel the check (so you’re in control in case the funds don’t arrive).
Some banks allow you to do wire fund transfers from your account to another’s bank account, and that’s probably the safest of all.
Best of luck to you. Perhaps other readers will chime in with their suggestion.
p.s. Years ago, I was put on a private plane by my employer to hand deliver a $40,000 check. That was a very costly delivery service, before online banking. My employer wanted to make sure the check got there, same day. It’s a memory I’ll never forget.
