How to deposit cheque into your own account?

I guess most of our most happy moment in our life is when we receive our paycheck, especially the first one. But there comes our most frustated moment on how we can turn the piece of paper to money. I’d hope this will help most of us in the future, and I think this would be applicable to any banks around Malaysia. Disclaimer : I offer no responsibility if any bad thing happens in the midst of the process, please consult to your nearest bank officer if you’d have any inquiries. I come in peace to help.

First  of all, we will need to obtain the cheque deposit slip from your nearest friendly bank, which will look exactly like the picture above and also you will need to have a cheque from your boss, or client. *NOTE* This is extremely important, before making any move beyond this, please check if the date written on the cheque is at least the same date or already passed the date where you are now, else you will go into a lot of trouble at the adminstration. For example, if the date of the cheque is 30th May 2007, and today is 25th May 2007, kindly wait until the date itself to make a cheque deposit.

We’ll move on by writing our bank account number and phone number for verification purpose.

And we’ll move on towards the bank slip, which we will have to fill in the details of the cheque. You’ll just need to tick on “Local cheque” if you have a cheque from around Klang Valley, and your bank is located around Klang Valley, except if it’s on a different state.

As for the bank field, I filled in MBB which stands for Maybank Berhad and note on the bottom left of the cheque that has the 6-digit code that you musn’t reveal to anyone of the cheque number.

And lastly at the bottom of the slip, you’ll have to fill in your name as per your account information and the account number.

Now we will turn to the back of the envelope/slip and note that there is an area and instruction where we can insert your cheque into it.

With care, slowly push the cheque into the envelope until it fits properly. We’re almost there!

And if you notice, there’s running dotted lines across the left edge of the slip, which you will need to turn it over and fold it so you can get the customer copy of the slip in case anything *finger crossed* happens.

By making sure the paper folded correctly…

Tear only the customer copy (yellow paper) carefully.

With that, you can keep that in your safety. And proceed towards your nearest bank to make the cheque deposit.

At the bank, locate this machine where we can put in our dearest cheque and turning it into tangile money form.

Wait patiently while it processes your request, and there will be a receipt appearing on the bottom left of the machine. Enjoy!

      Hi there,

      I think you have to check with the bank representatives on this. But most of the time I write it in. Probably to make their lives easier.

      Regards there,

      From my experience, below are my answers:

      1. I’m not sure if there’s a city for you to choose for DD (direct deposit?) but as long the name is the same it would be alright

      2. I’m not quite sure of what you’re trying to ask on this one, sorry.

      3. It is best to have the same name, but I’m doubting this will work, so it’s best to refer to your local bank representative

      Hi there,

      Yes you can, however expect 1 – 2 day delay for the fund to reach your account for inter-bank cheques.

      Hi Wen,

      As long the person bank-in the cheque, depending if it’s a local bank or inter-bank, you will get it within 1 – 3 working days.
      You will not get your money if the person decides to stop the cheque.
