if it's not made out to your name? And the other person does not endorse it?

you can't cash someone else's check. The person it was made out to needs to endorse it. If the check is endorsed, you can deposit the check in the account of the person who the check was made out to.

No you won't be able to cash the check but you can make the deposit to your joint account and then make a withdrawal if there are enough funds in the account to clear the check
