A check is a written order to pay someone a specific amount of money on a certain date. Here are the basic steps of how to properly write out a personal check with dollars and cents.
Today’s date. Include the month, day, and year.
The name of the recipient: the individual or company that you are writing the check to.
The amount of the check in numerals, with cents after the decimal. Begin as close as possible to the $. If cents are zero, be sure to write .00
The amount of the check in long-form in words, the word ‘and’, and then cents, which is written as a fraction as cents/100. Start at the left edge, and draw a line through the remaining space.
Optional field to describe the reason for the check, or an account number.
Your signature. Use the same signature on all your bank documents.
