Checking And Savings Accounts
A checking account is an account that allows you to access your money daily or monthly. You may pay bills or purchase items at a store from a checking account using a check or a debit card. Some checking accounts will earn interest. Also, some checking accounts require a minimum balance and/or a monthly fee.
A savings account is normally used to keep money for a longer time. This account usually earns you interest on your money. There is usually a minimum balance required for these accounts.
Your debit card (also known as an ATM card, or Automated Teller Machine card) is a plastic card used in a machine to access your money at any time of day. A debit card is usually free with a checking account. ATMs are located throughout the city of Ashland. There may be a charge to use ATMs that are not run by your specific bank. Money charged on your debit card is withdrawn automatically from your checking account, just like when you write a check.
