What Is a Checking Account?
A checking account is an account you can use for everyday payments and transactions, like paying bills, buying groceries, shopping, and other everyday spending. A major benefit of a checking account is your ability to access your money. Checking accounts usually come with checks and a debit card, giving you easy access to your money.
Some checking accounts require a minimum balance. This is important to look for when you’re researching checking accounts because if your balance falls below the required minimum balance, you could be charged a fee.
When you’re looking to open a checking account, be sure to also look at savings account options from the same financial institution. Some banks and credit unions offer special programs to help you use your checking account to build your savings. Having checking and savings at the same credit union can help you reach your financial goals by making it convenient to use and manage your money.
