How to endorse a check

When you deposit a check, you need to let the bank know that you have personally approved the transaction by endorsing the check.

On the back of the check near the top, you’ll write “For deposit only,” your signature, and the number of the account to which you want the check deposited. If you lose the check, the phrase “for deposit only” ensures the check can only be deposited in your account.
