Check Sellers

A check seller is an individual or business that engages in the business of selling or issuing checks.  A "check" means any check, money order, or any other instrument, order, or device for the payment or transmission of money or monetary value.

A check seller licensed by the Department may engage in the business of money transmission without obtaining a separate money transmitter license.

If you wish to reinstate an expired license, this requires the submission of a new license application form and all supporting documents and fees. The application form is the same as for new applicants. When submitting the application to the Department, please indicate "Reinstatement" on the first page of the application form.

Once a reinstatement application is submitted, the licensee will be contacted by e-mail in the event additional information is required. Reinstatement applications requiring additional information cannot be approved until such additional information is received and approved. All fines and fees must be paid before a reinstatement license is issued.
