What is Endorser?

An endorser is a person who signs a check or other negotiable instrument as an assurance that the instrument will be paid. Endorsers may be required to provide personal or financial information, and they may be held liable if the instrument is not paid or if there are other problems with the transaction. Endorsers may also be known as "sureties," and they may be used to guarantee payment, to transfer ownership, or to facilitate other financial transactions.
