How To Write a Check?

To write a check, follow these steps:

  1. Date the check in the top right corner.
  2. Write the name of the recipient in the “Pay to the Order of” field.
  3. Write the amount of the check in numerical form in the box to the right of the dollar sign.
  4. Write the amount of the check in words on the line below the recipient’s name. For example, if the check is for $45.67, you would write “Forty-five dollars and 67/100.”
  5. Write a brief message in the “For” field to specify the purpose of the check.
  6. Sign the check in the bottom right corner.
  7. If you want to void the check or make it invalid, write “VOID” diagonally across the front of the check.

Remember to fill out the check using a pen, not a pencil. Pencil can be erased, making it easier for someone to alter the check.
