Positive I.D. required

So I bought a product a couple of months ago that had a $5 rebate. I sent away for the rebate at that time and have now received the rebate check in the mail. On the back of the check right above the endorsement signature line, it says in large letters, "Positive I.D. Required. Third party endorsement prohibited."

I get the third party endorsement part, but what on earth does "Positive I.D. required" mean? Do I need to go into my credit union in person to deposit this check? Or can I deposit it at the ATM (is it enough that my name, address, and endorsement signature on the check match the credit union's info about me)?
