TIPS WHEN OPENING A CHECKING ACCOUNT
Checking accounts provide a useful way to
deposit monthly income, and for paying expenses. When
opening a checking account, be sure to understand fees and
services. For example, avoid providers that charge fees
every time you use your ATM card. If interest rates are low,
then low service fees are more important than marginally better
interest. Watch out for minimum balance service charges.
Try to keep your checking account balance at a
minimum (but again be careful of minimum balance charges) and
instead keep the money in a savings or money market account, where
you can get higher interest. Banks and credit unions offer
checking accounts. Discount brokerage accounts also offer
checking, and may give better interest if the money is invested in
a money market fund.
