How to write a check both dollar and cents in value

For example, to write a check for $36.46, you should follow these steps:

  1. Date: Write the current date in the top right corner.
  2. Payee: On the line that starts with “Pay to the Order of,” write the name of the person or company you’re paying.
  3. Numeric Amount: In the small box on the right, write “$36.46”.
  4. Written Amount: On the line below “Pay to the Order of,” write out the dollar amount in words. For $36.46, you would write “Thirty-six and 46/100”. The “46/100” represents the cents as a fraction of a dollar.
  5. Memo (Optional): In the lower left corner, there’s a line for a memo or note. This is optional but can be used to note what the payment is for.
  6. Signature: Sign the check on the line in the bottom right corner. Your check isn’t valid until you sign it.

Make sure to write legibly and to use a pen, not a pencil, to prevent alterations.
