    • Commercial banks are corporations that offer a full range of services including checking, savings, and lending

      • Insured by FDIC

    • Credit unions are user-owned and nonprofit

      • Hence their fees are usually lower than banks and the rates they pay are usually higher than banks

      • Insured by NCUSIF

Discussion: Are there any significant differences between banks and credit unions? Is your money safe?

Selecting payment methods l.jpg
Selecting Payment Methods

  • In 2003, the number of electronic payments exceeded the number of paper check payments for the first time

    • And the trend is accelerating

  • Certified check

    • Personal check with guaranteed payment

  • Cashier’s check

    • Check of a financial institution you get by paying the face amount plus a fee

  • Money order

    • Purchase at financial institution, post office, store

  • Traveler’s check

    • Each check must be signed twice

    • Electronic traveler’s checks – prepaid travel card with ability to get local currency at an ATM

    • Debit card or cash card activates transactions

    • Linked to a bank account – Requires a PIN

    • Liability if debit card is lost or stolen

  • To reduce ATM fees you can...

    • Compare ATM fees before opening an account

    • 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 l.jpg
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 l.jpg
What is “Truth in Savings?”

  • Requires disclosure of...

    • Fees on deposit accounts

    • The interest rate (a.k.a. the nominal rate)

    • The Annual Percentage Yield (APY)

  • Establishes rules for advertising accounts

  • Sets formulas for computing the APY

  • 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

Okay, ‘fess up!

Do you reconcile your checking account balance?

  • I balance it to the penny

  • I have a pretty good idea of the accuracy

  • Nope – I never reconcile it

  • As long as there are more checks in my checkbook, what do I have to worry about?
