KeyBank has introduced KeyBank Plus Check Cashing, a low-cost check cashing service, at 18 Buffalo-area branches.
The service allows individuals without accounts to cash their approved payroll, tax refund and government checks for a 1.5 percent fee at a participating branch. Key launched the service in 2004, and it is now available in 14 of Key's markets around the country.
"This expansion into the Buffalo market continues our commitment to invest in the communities we serve and help Western New York thrive," said Catherine Braniecki, KeyBank senior vice president and regional corporate responsibility officer.
There is a minimum fee of $3 and a maximum fee of $25 per check cashed.
