How to Deposit to a Bank Account

How to Deposit to a Bank Account
Deposit in person is a common method of deposit.

Deposit in Person

Prepare your deposit slip by listing each check or the exact amount of cash for the deposit.

Make a copy of the deposit slip and checks if the deposit is for your business, or you need a copy for your personal records.

Visit the closest bank branch and provide the teller your deposit either inside the bank or at the drive-through window.

Deposit by ATM

Visit the closest bank branch and obtain a deposit envelope from the ATM machine.

Write your account number, name and other required information on the deposit envelope and place the checks or cash inside. Seal the envelope.

Swipe your ATM card in the machine and select the deposit option.

Enter the amount of your deposit when the prompt appears.

Insert your deposit envelope in the slot provided on the machine and wait to receive your receipt.

Deposit by Mail

Contact your bank and ask how to make deposits by mail. Some banks have special mailing envelopes and a specific mailing address where the bank receives and processes mailed deposits. It is not safe to make cash deposits by mail so use this option only for checks.

Prepare the deposit by mail deposit slip and envelope according to the instructions received by your bank.

Mail the deposit to the appropriate processing center.
