Understanding endorsements and handling checks is crucial to making sound check cashing decisions. A check is a unique type of contract where ownership can be transferred by way of the endorsement on the back of the item. This program will look at who has the right to endorse the back of a check, and where is proper endorsement placement. We’ll also look at what happens if a check is not endorsed properly, when it may be best not to accept the check at all due to missing or problem endorsements and why we do not put business checks into personal accounts and why we do not give less cash on business accounts.
Many "tricky" issues will be discussed, such as deceased customers, business accounts, endorsements for minors, income tax check endorsements, trustee endorsements, and endorsements by powers of attorney. Learn the safe way to handle checks and be sure that you and your financial institution can be protected from loss on the negotiable instruments.
