Why does Western Union need so much of my information?

Do you wonder why Western Union needs you to provide us with so much information and what we do with it? It’s because of the regulations governing global financial transactions.

Money transfers sent throughout the world are highly regulated financial transactions.  And Western Union is required by law to collect certain sender information, so that we know our customers.

We take great care with how the collected information is used and stored. Send with confidence.
