1 Banking: 101 1

2 Checking Account What is a Checking Account?
An account where money is deposited and kept for day-to-day expenses Also called demand deposit because the money can be withdrawn on demand. How can money be withdrawn from a checking account? In person, at a teller station Check Card ATM Card Cash back at stores Checks Direct Payment 2

3 Canceled vs Stop Payment
What is a canceled check? A canceled check is a check that bears the bank’s stamp. You can use your canceled checks as proof of purchase or of payment if a Dispute arises. What is a stop payment order? A stop payment order is a request that the bank not cash a specific check. The usual reason for stopping payment is that the check has been lost or stolen. Most banks charge a fee for this service. 2

4 Bouncing a Check A check written for more money than your account
contains is called an overdraft. A financial institution receiving an overdraft usually stamps the check with the words “not sufficient funds” NSF and returns the check to the payee or at the payee’s institution. The check is considered “bounced.” The bank and the place where the check was written will both charge a fee. WARNING: You are floating a check when you realize your account contains insufficient funds but you write a check anyway hoping that a deposit will clear before the check is cashed. 10

9 Other types of checks A certified check is a personal check that the bank guarantees or certifies to be good. Sometimes a payee might want you to get your personal check certified to reduce the risk of accepting your check in payment. A cashier’s check also called a bank draft is a check written by a bank on its own funds. You can pay for a cashier’s check through a withdrawal for your savings or checking account, or in cash. 20

10 Bank Fees Bank charge fees to their customers to help cover their operating costs. For example, when a bank grants you a loan, it charges you a loan fee. When the bank acts as a trustee, it charges a fee for this service. Banks also charge non-customers for services such as check cashing. Banks make a lot of money from fees. Overdrafts, NSF checks, balances that fall below the stated minimum, cashiers and certified checks, travelers’ checks, use of other banks’ ATM’s, online bill payment and monthly account servicing. Shop around to find the bank that offers you the best services that you will use at free or the lowest prices. 20
