How To: Endorse a check

Endorse a check

Just got piad? Turn your check into dollar bills by endorsing it at the bank. Don't know how? Watch this.

You Will Need:
• A bank
• A check made payable to you
• A pen
• Your bank account number

Step 1: Take the check to the bank
Take your check to your banking institution.

Step 2: Sign in space allotted
Sign your check in the designated area only. The back of the check will tell you where to sign your name.

Step 3
Sign your name exactly the way it appears on the front of the check.

Step 4: Write account number
Write your bank account number below your signature.

Step 5: Write "For deposit only"
Write "For deposit only," under your account number when mailing your check to the bank, or when someone else is depositing it for you.

Trivia: A 1988 Federal law limited the endorsement portion of the back of a check to 1½ inches.
