I got a check from the insurance agency for hurricane damage. The check has both my name and my wife's name on it. My wife has already endorsed the check but is travelling out of town now and I want to cash the check. The checking account is in both our names, can I cash the check or do I have to deposit it first?

Can I cash a check that has my name and another name but there's a / between the two? I'm being told that the / is like the word "or" so either name can endorse.
