If you have a check from an insurance company that is made out to you, then yes, you may cash it. Depending on where you cash it, proof of identity may be required. This is usually requested in the form of photo ID, such as a valid driver's license. You may also deposit the check into a checking or savings account. If the check is for a large amount, the party cashing or depositing the check may call the insurance company to verify that the check is legitimate before honoring the check. That is no cause for alarm and may be a standard operating procedure. You will definitely need to endorse the check, though, which means signing the back of the check near the top. With this in mind, you should have no problem claiming funds from an insurance benefit that are rightfully yours; just be sure to bring your photo ID with you.
