Forgive me for what is probably quite an obvious question for anyone who understands the US banking system, but I don't.
I live in the UK, and I have a check in US dollars I need to do something with. Somewhat conveniently I have a US bank account dating from some time I spent working in the US about 10 years ago, so I'd like to pay it in to that to avoid the fees for negotiating it in the UK. I guess I should mail it to the bank, but what other information should I include?
I have a bunch of "deposit tickets" in the back of my checkbook, which also is about 10 years old, so I guess I could fill one of those in.
I'm also a bit confused by when and how you need to "endorse" a check.
I've left this a bit late - only have about a month left before the 6 month limit on the check expires - so need to get it right first time.
