1 Ensure the check is valid. Check that the following items are legible and correct: name and address of the check’s issuer, date of issue, your name, and amount of money. Also confirm that the font of the check is signed.
2 Visit your bank. You must take your check, account number, and a valid form of personal identification. You can visit any branch of your bank. To find the nearest branch, search online. Most banks will show nearby branches on a map.
3 Fill out a deposit slip. There should be a stack of slips along with pens at a table. Deposit slips are about the same size as a check. You can also request a deposit slip from the teller, but the process will move more quickly if you fill out the deposit slip ahead of time. Write in your account number and the amount of the check on the deposit slip. There should also be space for requesting cash back.
