Helpful Hints on Banking
A CERTIFIED CHECK
"T" HIS is one that has been stamped "cer
1 tified" and then signed by an official
of the bank. It is, in other words, guaran
teed to be good. Such a check is immedi
ately charged to the depositor's account and
is equivalent to cash. Care should be taken,
then, that it is not lost or destroyed. ,
