Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

You can't cash it, that would be illegal.

Send it to your insurers. They are entitled to the payment.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

If not, I would appreciate a 5 star rating for my answer. Thanks!

the cheque was in my name and not the same amount as what the insurance company paid out and that was 2 weeks ago

Ok. You still need to send it to them. You are not entitled to the payment.

The insurers paid - this means they own your car.

They will resolve the matter with the company.

Does that clarify?
