Sample deposit slip for savings, checking, or money market account.
As you use the red dot to drag the magnifying glass over the deposit slip, the elements are explained here.
Account Number: This number ensures that the money is deposited in the correct account. If you do not have your account number with you, your bank can provide the information to you. Your information: Your name is pre-printed or written in. Date: You will write today’s date here. Cash: If depositing cash, you would write the amount here. Checks: If you are depositing checks or money orders, you would list each check separately here, including check number and amount, and continue on the back if more space were needed. Subtotal: You will add the cash and check amounts and write the total amount being deposited here. Less Cash Received: If you are at the bank, you would use this space to write the amount of cash you would like to get back from the checks you are depositing. The teller will ask you to sign the deposit slip and provide identification to confirm that you are the account holder. Total: You will subtract the amount, if any, on the line “Less Cash Received” from the Subtotal, and write the total amount being deposited here. Signature Line: The teller will ask you to sign the deposit slip and provide identification to confirm that you are the account holder, if you are withdrawing cash from your deposit. Bank Routing Number: This identifies the bank which holds your account. Bank Address: This is your bank's pre-printed address.
