Banking Services Wire Transfer A bank can arrange money to wire from your account. Safe Deposit Box Boxes with individual locks that you may rent from a bank.
Banking Services Special Types of Checks Certified Checks Once stamped or perforated the bank becomes liable for the amount certified. You have a checking account at the bank. Cashier’s Checks A person who buys a cashier’s check does not need to have a checking account at that bank. A cashier’s check has a better guarantee of payment because it is drawn by a bank against itself.
Banking Services Money Order For people who don’t maintain a checking account or who prefer not to make payments with cash, money orders often serves the same function as personal checks. Money orders, sometimes called register checks, can be purchased at banks and some retail stores. Personal money orders are usually issued in smaller amounts and are cheaper than cashier checks. Government Checks Almost everyone will receive a government check in their lifetime. A tax refund is an example of a government check. Federal government checks are drawn on the U.S. Treasury and state or local government checks are drawn on commercial banks or on the government treasury. Traveler’s Check Traveler’s checks are sold through banks and travel companies, usually in $20, $50, $100, and $500 denominations. The usual cost is the face value plus a small percentage. The purchaser of traveler checks signs them at the time of purchase and again when they are collected. This practice protects both the user and the cashing party. Lost or stolen traveler’s checks will be insured by the issuing company.
Banking IRA ACCOUNT Individual Retirement Account. $2000 is allowed each year for each individual, exempt from taxation until 591/2 years of age. Heavy penalties for early withdrawal. Certificate of Deposit Savings account certificate form instead of passbook, earns an attractive interest rate for a certain amount of time.
Vocabulary Reconciliation Bringing two figures into balance or agreement. Uses the bank balance and the checkbook register. Cancelled Check Your bank might return your cancelled check with your statement. Each check will have a cancelled stamp on it. This stamp indicates that your bank has paid the check.
Vocabulary Check Clear or Clearing When you deposit a check, you can’t withdraw the money immediately unless you already have enough money in your account to cover the check. The check must “clear” first. When your bank receives payment for the check the check has cleared and the money is available.
