Foreign Checks (Drafts)
A foreign bank draft is a check denominated in foreign currency that is drawn against funds deposited in a foreign bank. Foreign drafts clear locally in the beneficiary's home country. Rockland Trust offers foreign drafts in a wide range of currencies. Please contact your local branch for more information.
Foreign Check Conversion
Foreign denominated checks can be submitted to Rockland Trust for conversion to US dollars under a Cash Letter or as a Collection item. A Cash Letter may result in an immediate credit to your account for the check submitted and a Collection item means that the funds are not credited to your account until we have collected funds on the foreign item.
