How to fill in a deposit slip

When you make a deposit by mail or at the bank (and at some ATMs) you’ll be asked to fill in a deposit slip.

Review the parts of a deposit slip.

Blank deposit slip

Account number
This number ensures that the money is deposited in the correct account. If you do not have your account number with you, your bank can provide the information to you.

Your information
Your name is pre-printed or written in.

Date
You will write today’s date here.

Cash
If depositing cash, you would write the amount here.

Checks
If you are depositing checks or money orders, you would list each one separately here and continue on the back if more space were needed.

Subtotal
You will add the cash and check amounts and write the total amount being deposited here.

Less cash received
If you are at the bank, you would use this space to write the amount of cash you would like to get back from the checks you are depositing. The teller will ask you to sign the deposit slip and provide identification to confirm that you are the account holder.

Total
You will subtract the amount, if any, on the line “Less Cash Received” from the Subtotal, and write the total amount being deposited here.

Signature line
The teller will ask you to sign the deposit slip and provide identification to confirm that you are the account holder, if you are withdrawing cash from your deposit.
