Hannaford Check Cashing Policy

Hannaford offers check cashing at most locations, and the stores that do cash checks tend to follow a standard check cashing policy, which we detail below. We contacted Hannaford stores across New England and found that about 75% of Hannaford locations cash checks.

Requirements

Hannaford will cash a variety of check types, including:

  • Personal
  • Payroll
  • Government (Tax refunds, Social Security, etc.)

All checks must be printed; if you have a handwritten check, you’ll need to go elsewhere to cash it.

To cash a check, you don’t need a membership or rewards card, and you don’t need to make a purchase at the store. Visit the customer service counter with a state-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license, and provide your Social Security number.

Fees & Limits

Hannaford typically charges a $1 fee for check cashing, though fees may vary by location. The minimum check amount you can cash is $1, while there is a maximum transaction amount of $1,000 for one check and $1,200 for two checks.
