    • Use your own bank’s ATM when possible
    • Withdraw larger cash amounts as needed
    • Use personal checks, traveler’s checks, credit cards, and pre-paid cash cards when traveling
evaluating savings plans
Evaluating Savings Plans
  • Rate of return or yield
    • Percentage increase in value due to interest
  • Compounding - interest on interest
    • Annually, semiannually, quarterly, daily
  • Annual Percentage Yield (APY)
  • After-Tax Rate of Return
    • (1 – Marginal-Tax-Rate) x Rate-of-Return
    • (1 – 25%) x 6% = 0.75 x .06 = 0.045 = 4.5%
    • So even if you are earning 6%, after you pay the taxes on the interest you earned, you are actually earning only 4.5%
what is truth in savings
What is “Truth in Savings?”

    • Fees on deposit accounts

  • Interest must be compounded on the full principal amount in the account each day
    • The bank can put a hold on your money but it still must pay you any interest you deserve
