Save & Invest 

Most banks and credit unions offer basic saving and checking accounts. If you have an account, you can take advantage of other bank services. For example, there’s usually no charge for cashing your paycheck. Or, better yet, you can have the check deposited directly in your account via direct deposit.

But banks and credit unions aren’t all alike. To choose one that works best for you, consider:

  • Services
  • Cost
  • Convenience
