What is the dictionary definition of Certified Check?

Dictionary Definition


n. a check issued by a bank which certifies that the maker of the check has enough money in his/her account to cover the amount to be paid.

Like a cashier’s check, a certified check guarantees that it is immediately good since it is guaranteed by the bank and the recipient does not have to wait until it “clears.
