what does signature of remitter mean on a money order?

That means the signature of the person “sending” (remitting) the money order.


What an unhelpful teller. The remitter, person sending the money, is you so it’s your signature that’s needed. You are also the payee, as in pay to the order of yourself at your new account in New York. It IS confusing, and you could easily have been given the help you need at the bank. There’s no stigma attached to asking. If you’re not going back to your old bank, you could just take the check with you and fill it out at the counter in your new bank, asking “that means my signature, right?” “that means my name and new account no., yes?” Good luck at college!

If you are the remitter, it means your signature.
