How to fill out a bank deposit slip.
Bank deposit slips can be paper or electronic. They provide essential information to the bank and need to be completed correctly. Let’s take a look at the important steps.
The bank deposit slip has been around as long as there have been banks. They’re easy to fill out but also contain essential information the bank needs to fulfill the transaction. Modern banking often happens online but the bank requires the same information —whether online or standing before a teller.
Follow these steps to fill out a bank deposit slip.
Electronic deposit slips are generally much easier to fill out than paper ones because the bank already knows who you are and which accounts you can access when logging into your account. Many banks allow you to deposit checks by taking a picture of their front and back, but for cash, you still need to use a teller or ATM.
For the bank to fulfill your deposit request and put your money where you want it, there are a few steps you should follow:
- Make sure you provide your name as it appears on your account.
- Include the account number. Some paper deposit slips are pre-printed with the account number.
- If you are requesting cash back, you may be required to sign the deposit slip in the appropriate space.
- Fill in how much cash you’re depositing, if any. Cash, in this case, refers to both paper bills and coins.
- Fill in how much of your deposit is from actual checks. Most banks want you to list the amount for each check separately.
- Include a subtotal for the cash and checks along with any amount you want back.
- Total the deposit at the bottom.
