Individual retirement account

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An Individual Retirement Account is a form of "individual retirement plan", provided by many financial institutions, that provides tax advantages for retirement savings in the United States. An individual retirement account is a type of "individual retirement arrangement" as described in IRS Publication 590, Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs). The term IRA, used to describe both individual retirement accounts and the broader category of individual retirement arrangements, encompasses an individual retirement account; a trust or custodial account set up for the exclusive benefit of taxpayers or their beneficiaries; and an individual retirement annuity, by which the taxpayers purchase an annuity contract or an endowment contract from a life insurance company.

Certificate of deposit

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A certificate of deposit (CD) is a time deposit, a financial product commonly sold in the United States by banks, thrift institutions, and credit unions.

CDs are similar to savings accounts in that they are insured and thus virtually risk free; they are "money in the bank." In the USA, CDs are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) for banks and by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) for credit unions. They are different from savings accounts in that the CD has a specific, fixed term (often monthly, three months, six months, or one to five years) and, usually, a fixed interest rate. It is intended that the CD be held until maturity, at which time the money may be withdrawn together with the accrued interest.

ATM card

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A sample picture of a fictional ATM card.An ATM card (also known as a bank card, client card, key card, or cash card) is any payment card issued by a financial institution to its customers which enables a customer to access an automated teller machine (ATM) for transactions such as deposits, cash withdrawals, obtaining account information, and other types of banking transactions. The payment card may be any card which has that feature enabled, and may be a debit, credit, a limited-use ATM or other card. Interbank networks allow the use of ATM cards at ATMs of financial institutions other than those of the issuing institution.

ATM cards can also be used on improvised ATMs, such as merchants' card terminals that deliver ATM features without any cash drawer (commonly referred to as mini ATMs). These terminals can also be used as Cashless scrip ATMs by cashing the fund transfer receipt at the merchant's Cashier.

The first ATM cards were issued by Barclays in London, in 1967, and by Chemical Bank in Long Island, New York, in 1969.

Savings account

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A passbook, the traditional record of savings account transactionsSaving accounts are accounts maintained by retail financial institutions that pay interest but cannot be used directly as money in the narrow sense of a medium of exchange (for example, by writing a cheque). These accounts let customers set aside a portion of their liquid assets while earning a monetary return. For the bank, money in a savings account may not be callable immediately and in some jurisdictions, does not incur a reserve requirement, freeing up cash from the bank's vault to be lent out with interest.

The other major types of deposit account are transactional account (checking account or current account by country), money market account, and time deposit.
