  38. Evaluating Savings Plans • Several Factors will influence your Savings Plan decision • Rate of Return, Inflation, Tax Considerations, Liquidity, Restrictions, and Fees

  39. Rate of Return • Percentage of increase in the value of your savings from earned interest • Divide total interest by the amount deposited into the account • Ex: $2 interest / $50 deposit = 4% ROR • See pg. 208

  40. Compounding • Process in which interest is earned on both the principal and on any previously earned interest • Using Prior example: Your earned $2 interest for the first period, next period would be figured at $52 * Rate, and so on • See pg. 207 • The more frequently your balance is compounded the greater your rate of return

  41. Truth in Savings • Financial institutions have to inform you of the terms and conditions of all savings accounts, including fees, interest rates, and the annual percentage yield (APY) • Annual Percentage Yield: Amount of interest that a $100 deposit would earn after compounding for one year • Pg. 207 APY is 4.07% • Higher the APY the better the return

  42. Inflation • Want an account that will change as the inflation rate changes • Most accounts will change every few months • Problem arises with CD’s because you are locked into for so long

  43. Tax Considerations • Taxes reduce the interest earned on savings • Usually have to pay taxes on interest that you earn • Tax exempt and tax deferred saving plans are offered

  44. Liquidity • Check to see if there is a penalty for withdrawing funds early (cash or lower interest rate) • If you need to be able to withdraw at convenience, put into a low interest liquid account • If saving for long term goals, liquidity not as important. Get the higher rate of return

  45. Safety • Most financial institutions are insured • Protects against bank failure • Either given your money or taken over by a new bank • Protected by the FDIC, SAIF, and Credit Unions use NCUA

  46. Restrictions and Fees • Check for delays between the time interest is earned and when it is actually paid into your account • Any fees for deposits or withdrawals ? • Service charges for falling below minimum balance? • Fee if you don’t use the account for a certain amount of time

  47. Types of Checking Accounts • Regular • Activity • Interest Earning

  48. Regular Checking Accounts • Usually don’t require a minimum balance • If does require balance and fall below, usually $7 - $10 fee • Fee sometimes waived if keep a certain balance in your savings account

  49. Activity Accounts • Useful if you write only a few checks each month and are unable to maintain a minimum balance • Charged a fee for each check you write and sometimes a fee for each deposit + monthly service charge

  50. Interest-Earning Checking Account • Cross between checking and savings, pay a low interest rate if you maintain a minimum balance • If you don’t maintain the min. balance may be charged a fee and given no interest
