Get Answers to Your Banking Questions

I received an insurance check made payable both to me and to the bank. Should I send it to the bank?

The check may be payable to both the policy holder (you) and the lien holder (the bank). Once you receive the check, notify your bank to determine what steps should be taken, including whether you should send the check to the bank.
