Suggested Lesson Plan to use with this Check Endorsement Worksheet

The reason you endorse a check is to either deposit it or to sign it over to someone else. When endorsing a check, you turn the check over, and sign it on the back of the check. You should sign your name exactly the same way it is written on the front of the check.

Once you turn your check over, place it so it faces up, like this:

You will sign the check underneath, where the check says "ENDORSE CHECK HERE", or a similar phrase. Do no make any marks under the line that says not to write below this line.

There are several different ways to endorse a check:

BLANK ENDORSEMENT - Sign your name the same way it appears on the front of the check. If it is spelled wrong on the front, then sign it again correctly. IMPORTANT - Do not sign your check with a blank endorsement until you are about to either cash or deposit it, otherwise someone else could potentially try to cash your check. Anyone can cash a check once you endorse a check with a blank endorsement.

RESTRICTIVE ENDORSEMENT - This is the safer method to endorse your check and is recommended if you are mailing or someone else is depositing your check. Before signing your check, write a phrase such as "For deposit Only", or "For deposit to account number..." and then sign your same underneath. Then the check may only be deposited to either the bank or to your specific bank account.

SPECIAL ENDORSEMENT - This method allows you to sign your check over to someone else (a third party) who may then deposit it or cash it. Write "Pay to the order of" and then the name of the person you are giving the check to. Then, as above, sign your name underneath. Now you can give your check to that individual.
