What is Check?

A check (spelled cheque in American English) is a negotiable instrument instructing a financial institution to pay a specific amount of a specific currency from a specified demand account held in the maker/depositor’s name with that institution. Both the maker and payee may be natural persons or legal entities.

Types of cheques in the United States

In the United States, checks are governed by Article 3 of the Uniform Commercial Code.

An order check – the most common form in the United States – is payable only to the named payee or his or her endorsee, as it usually contains the language “Pay to the order of (name).”

A bearer check is payable to anyone who is in possession of the document: this would be the case if the cheque does not state a payee, or is payable to “bearer” or to “cash” or “to the order of cash”, or if the cheque is payable to someone who is not a person or legal entity, e.g. if the payee line is marked “Happy Birthday”.

A counter check is a bank cheque given to customers who have run out of cheques or whose cheques are not yet available. It is often left blank, and is used for purposes of withdrawal.

In the United States, the terminology for a cheque historically varied with the type of financial institution on which it is drawn. In the case of a savings and loan association it was a negotiable order of withdrawal; if a credit union it was a share draft. Checks as such were associated with chartered commercial banks. However, common usage has increasingly conformed to more recent versions of Article 3, where check means any or all of these negotiable instruments. Certain types of cheques drawn on a government agency, especially payroll cheques, may also be referred to as a payroll warrant. [Via: Wikipedia]
