A check is a written order signed by the depositor directing the bank to pay a specified sum of money to a designated recipient. There are three parties to a check: (1) the maker (or drawer) who issues the check, (2) the bank (or payer) on which the check is drawn, and (3) the payee to whom the check is payable. A check is a negotiable instrument that one party can transfer to another party by endorsement.
