Hi, this is Laura Turner and today I'm going to talk with you about how to write a voided check. You may need to write a voided check in order to give it to your employer so you can be setup for direct deposit and this is a lot easier than you think it is. In fact it's so easy that you can just take a check right from your checkbook and then write in big capital letters VOID across the entire check. Make sure that you write across the account information however because that's what your employer is going to use to give you direct deposit. But make sure that you write VOID across the check and then also record that missing check in your checkbook so that you're not sort of wondering where the check went and saying oh crap, yes I did void that check. And voiding a check is just so that nobody else can use it other than you. And that in a nutshell is exactly how you void a check.
