How To Write A Check

If you don’t know how to write a check, you are not alone. There are many reasons why people do not know how to write a check.

Some of the reasons are:

  • They were never taught in school
  • Their parents never taught them how to write a check
  • They are new to this country
  • Their parents, spouse, or someone else has always taken care of their finances for them
  • They never needed a checking account until now
  • They had a checking account a long time ago and have forgotten how to use one

In this post, I am including some resources that will help you learn how to write a check.

    Peter, the way I was taught was:

    One thousand one hundred and no/100——-

    You should never write eleven hundred dollars, you should always write it out.
