How To Fill out a Check?
Step 2: Pay To Line
Fill outline that says “Pay to the order of,” and write the name of the person or organization you are paying. In this case, if you don’t know the exact name of the person or organization, you can also write “cash.” However, this can be risky if the check is lost or stolen. Anyone can cash or deposit a check made out to “cash.”
Step 3: Amount Box
Write the amount numerically in the small box on the right-hand side. Start as far over to the left as possible to keep someone from sneaking a number upfront. For instance, If your payment is for $100.15, then the ‘1’ should be right up against the left-hand border of the dollar box to prevent fraud.
Step 4: Amount Line
Spell up the numbers and write the cents as a fraction. Write out the amounts using words to avoid fraud and confusion. The amount you write in words will legally be the number of your checks. Also, use all capital letters, which are harder to alter. Finally, draw a line after the amount to fill up the rest of the space to keep someone adding text.
For example, to spell up $100.15 as ‘ONE HUNDRED AND 15/100.’
Step 5: Memo Line
Fill out the line that says “Memo” with a note. This step is optional and will not affect how businesses process your checks. A memo line is a good place to add a reminder about why you wrote a check. Also, it can be good to know in the future or for your tax records, like giving to a charity.
Step 6: Signature
This step is essential, and the check will not be valid without a signature. Sign the check legibly on the line in the bottom right corner. Significantly, use the same name and signature that you have on the file at your bank.
