When all of a player's checkers are in the player's home board, that player may start removing them; this is called "bearing off".

A roll of 1 may be used to bear off a checker from the 1-point, a 2 from the 2-point, and so on.
A die may not be used to bear off checkers from a lower-numbered point unless there are no checkers on any higher points.
