    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.
