Intro to Banking and Credit Two basic types of accounts 1.Savings – savings accounts pay interest on the money in the account. This is because the bank assumes that savings account money will not be used by account holder, thus allowing the bank to use that money to make loans. Bank loans are paid back with interest and some of that interest is then paid back to original account holder. 2.Checking – some checking accounts also pay interest, but there is usually a minimum amount of money that must be kept in the account.
