STATE—When opening a checking or savings account, security and convenience top the list of must-haves. But how do you know which bank, savings and loan or other choice is the right one for you? According to the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJSCPA) there are many different factors to consider:
Security Comes First
Your chief concern in selecting a bank will be the safety of the money in your accounts. Most depositors at banks and savings and loans are insured by a government agency called the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or FDIC for short. Due to the current problems in the banking industry, the FDIC will guarantee each depositor’s money up to $250,000 through Dec. 31, 2009. That means your cash will be returned to you, even if your bank fails. Some retirement accounts, including individual retirement accounts, are covered for up to $250,000 per depositor. So, the first question you should ask about any institution you’re considering is whether your deposits will be FDIC insured. If you have joint accounts, each depositor’s share of the account is protected up to $250,000 until Dec. 31, 2009, and for at least $100,000 thereafter.
