A checking account is a bank account that's used mainly for transactions. In fact, the technical term for a checking account is a "transaction account." The owner is usually able to withdraw from or deposit money into a checking account at any time. When you have a checking account, you're able to get a checkbook to write checks.
A checking account is mainly used for transactions, so it's common for the owner to frequently make withdrawals or deposits. A savings account is used to set aside money so that it won't be used in transactions.
Savings accounts usually have more strict usage rules. For example, most banks and credit unions require savings accounts to have a minimum balance at all times. Savings accounts usually have transaction limits, which means you're limited as to how many times per month you can pull money from the account. The rules exist so that you'll use the account to set aside money and not spend it.
A debit card is linked to a checking account. When you use a debit card to make a transaction, the money is pulled from your checking account. It's a substitute for cash.
You'll have a variety of ways to check your checking account when you open one with Bellwether. You can check your account at any one of our three New Hampshire branches, or you can check your account online or on our free mobile app. We can also send you monthly account statements by mail.
