Recently married; Dear husband and I opened an USAA joint checking and savings (I am the primary member on the joint accounts). I am looking to deposit checks into joint accounts. How do I deposit checks that are made out to both of us? How do I deposit checks that are made out to Mr. and Mrs (his last name) as I am not legally changing my last name?

Thanks for reaching out, @scj199 - Congratulations on the recent nuptials! In order to endorse a check that is made payable to both of you (such as Mr. and Mrs. or Jane and Joe Smith or Jane Doe and Joe Smith) you both would need to sign it. The endorsement should read like:

For Deposit Only

(your name)

(husband's name)

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any other questions or concerns. - Cathleen
