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.

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.
