Frequently asked questions

Savings and checking accounts serve different purposes, and each has its advantages. A savings account is designed for long-term savings and those with higher interest rates can help your money grow over time. It's ideal for emergency funds or saving for specific goals. On the other hand, a checking account provides easy access to your funds for daily transactions, bill payments, and ATM withdrawals. With an interest-bearing checking account, you can earn money from the cash you deposit. To effectively manage your finances, it's recommended to have both types of accounts. Keep a sufficient balance in your checking account for everyday expenses and use a savings account to accumulate savings and earn interest.
