Do I need to have my street address printed on my checks?

I'm planning on moving, but staying in the same town, within the next two months, but I need a checkbook now. Do I need my street address on my checks


The new place isn't set in stone yet.. Can I just have city and zip?

    The banks will still process the checks, even without an address at all. But some retailers won't accept a check without an address printed on it.

    In your situation... I'd recommend getting the checks printed with your current address. Most check printers will mail the new checks to the printed address by default, and that's where you're receiving mail.

    You can continue to use the old checks after you move: just hand-edit the street address if it's going to matter.

    Yes, the new address.
