Default Do you need ID to cash a postal money order?

I'm only 17, and I don't have any kind of ID. Will they ask me when I try to cash on at the post office?

depends on the amount.

for smaller amounts. lets say 20-40 bucks they dont require it.
But if it's a high amount, they'll ask for your DL.

Two forms of ID for postal money orders. A utility bill in your name counts as one. Social security cards don't count.

Two forms? What else could I present aside from a DL?

FYI, you can get a state issued ID at 17

school id works does it not?

When they ask me for ID with my CC, I usually just flash my wallet which has my school ID on front.
