4 Some Benefits of Banks Note: These same benefits also are true for credit unions and for savings and loans. Banks help people to manage their finances (money). Most people put their money in banks. Some people do not put their money in banks. Some people do not trust banks. Some people do not know how to use banks. Some people do not know how banks can help them. Here is some information about banks. Banks are safe. Some people are afraid that a bank will lose their money. They are afraid the bank will be robbed. They are afraid the bank will go broke. Most banks are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). This means that people will get their money back (up to a maximum of $100,000), even if something bad happens to the bank. Banks can help people to save money. Many people cash their checks at check cashing stores. They pay the store money to cash their check. They pay 3% - 10% of their check to the store. People do not have to pay a fee to deposit and withdraw their money from their bank account. Banks can help people to make more money. Some people keep their money at home. Money cannot grow if you keep it at home. If it is in a bank, it can get interest (money the bank gives you for putting your money in their bank). Banks can help people to establish credit. You can apply for a loan from a bank. A loan is money you borrow for a certain period of time. A loan needs to be paid back. The bank will charge interest. This interest is money you pay the bank for using their money. If you have been a good customer at the bank and have managed your money well, the bank is more likely to give you a loan. What About You? What do you think about bank accounts? Discuss your answer with a partner. Write what is good about having a bank account (the advantages). Write what is not good about having a bank account (the disadvantages). Having a Bank Account Advantages Disadvantages

6 A Hard Lesson to Learn From Cundinas to Bank Accounts My name is Juanita. I learned a hard lesson - - twice! I joined a cundina. I joined because it would force me to save money. We had thirty members. Every member put in $100 every week. Every week, for thirty weeks, we would take turns withdrawing (taking out) $3,000. I was going to get $3,000 after twenty-five weeks. I was one of the last people to take the money out. I put in my money every week, but I never got my $3,000. The cundina leader did not give it to me. I couldn t get it from her. That was four years ago. I lost my money. I tried another one with different people. We put in $50 a week and would take out $1,000. Again, I never got my share. I don t think a cundina is a very smart way to save. Sometimes the members are not responsible. You cannot always trust them. Last year my cousin asked me to join a pyramid. It is another way to save money together with friends or family. In a pyramid people take turns getting their money. I did not join. I learned my lesson. Now I use my bank account when I want to save money. Every week I withdraw (take out) $100 from my checking account and I deposit it (put it) into my savings account. At the end of the year I have $5,000. It is a good way to save. I never lose my money in the bank. Cundinas are a tradition from the Hispanic community. Cundinas depend on trust. Members trust that every member will put in their money every week. Every week a different member gets to take out the full amount. Example: Ten people are members. Everyone puts in $100 each week. The total in the cundina is $1,000 every week. The members take numbers to decide who gets the first $1,000, the second $1,000, and so on. The cundina lasts for ten weeks. In ten weeks everyone puts in $1,000. Everyone takes out $1, members x $100/week = $1,000 each

7 Math Practice Juanita was in the cundina with 30 people. Each member put in $100 a week. Juanita was number 25 in the cundina. That means she would take out $3,000 in the 25th week. 1. How much money had Juanita put in on the 25th week? 2. How many more weeks would she have to give $100 after she got her $3,000? 3. If Juanita put $100 a week in a savings account for a year, how much money will she have at the end of the year? 4. If the savings account pays 3% interest per year, how much money (interest) will her money make? Math Tip 3% = 3/100, or.03 To answer number 4, multiply your answer in number 3 by.03. What About You? Have you ever joined a cundina? Have you ever saved money together with other people? What was your experience? Directions. Circle the number that shows your experience. Tell a partner about your experience. Poor Fair Good Excellent My experience was What are some other ways to save money? Discuss it with a partner. Write your answers here.

8 Interest on Savings A Worksheet Juanita wants to save $100 a month. How much will she have if she saves $100 a month by keeping it at home? How much will she have if she saves $100/month in a bank account that pays 3% monthly interest?* Directions. Compare the two by filling in the chart. The first three months are done for you. Month Deposit Add deposit ($100) to previous balance Balance at Home Add deposit to previous balance. Add 3% (Multiply by.03 to get 3%.) Balance In a Bank with 3% Interest $100 $100 $100 $100 $100 + $100 = $200 $100 $100 + $200 = $300 $100 $100 $100 $100 $100 $100 $100 $100 $ = % (6.00) = = % ($9.18) = = % (12.46) = $ $ $ * Not every bank account pays interest monthly. Many accounts only pay interest quarterly (four times a year; every three months). Interest is usually added at the end of the month.

9 How to Open a Bank Account In most states, you must be at least 18 years old to open your own account. Banks require the following personal information to open an account: your name, address, and telephone number your social security number a picture identification You may also be asked: your mother s maiden name (her last name before she married) your date of birth (DOB) prior addresses of places you have lived Directions. The bank will ask for your personal information to open an account. Write your personal information below. How to Choose a Bank Finding the right bank for you is important. Look at several banks and compare them before you choose one. 1. Find a bank that is convenient for you (easy to get to and open when you will need it). 2. Make sure it is insured by FDIC, or if it s a credit union, by NCUA. 3. Find out their fees for checking and savings accounts. Name: Address: 4. Find out what the fees are to use the ATM. City: State: Zip: Social Security Number (SSN): * Date of Birth (DOB): Mother s maiden name: Most recent prior address: *Your social security number is your private identification number. Do not write it here. Do not write it on forms unless it is required, (for example, on legal forms, job applications, citizenship applications, etc.) Do not let anyone steal your social security number. This could become a very serious problem called identity theft.

10 Shopping for a Bank Dianna is shopping around (looking) for a bank. She is visiting banks to ask questions. She is looking for the best one for her. Here is the information Dianna has found. Bank A It is next door to where Dianna works. It is convenient. It requires $100 to open an account. The monthly fee is $12. (A $100 balance must be kept. If a $1,000 balance is kept in the account, there will be no monthly fee.) The account earns no interest. (But if a $1,000 balance is kept, the account will earn 1.5% interest.) There is no fee for using an ATM card. There is a 25 per check fee. Credit Union It is near Dianna s home, but it is not open after she gets off work. It requires $100 minimum to open an account. A $100 a month balance must be maintained. There is no monthly fee. There is no ATM fee. It earns 1.2% interest. There is no fee for checks. Bank B It is across the street from Bank A. It requires a $25 deposit to open an account. The same amount ($25) must be maintained monthly. The monthly fee is $8.00. The account gets no interest. There is a $15 fee for an ATM card. There is no fee to write checks. Savings & Loan The bank is near Dianna s home. It is open after she gets off of work. It requires $50 to open an account and a $20 monthly balance. It has a monthly fee of $7.50. It pays no interest. There is no ATM fee. A 15 fee is charged for every check Tip: Always ask if there is a basic account that would cost less. Sometimes a bank has a special account for people who do not write many checks.

You can count how many customers: one, two, three You cannot count water (although you can count containers of water). When you use a non-count word like water, you would use much (I drank too much water).

Read the sentences with a partner. Example: I have too much homework. 1. I have too money. 2. I have too dimes. 3. He eats too bread. 4. There are too bills every month. 5. They have too fun. 6.

24 The Big Picture Our Neighborhood In Financial Services in Distressed Communities: Issues and Answers, James H. Carr and Jenny Schuetz report that poor and low-income neighborhoods do not have many banks. Middle-class and rich neighborhoods have a lot of banks. South Central Los Angeles has one banking institution for every 36,000 people. Pacific Palisades has one banking institution for every 1,250 people.* Poor areas have more pawn shops, check-cashing stores, payday lenders, and rent-toown stores. Many times these stores charge their customers a lot of money. Some people say that they charge high fees because they know the people cannot find a bank in the area. Others say that they charge high fees because they know their customers do not have money to open a bank account. Some people say they charge high fees because they are afraid the customers will not pay them back. They want to cover their costs. In 1995 a survey of low income families showed that 25% did not use banks. It also showed that 33% of African-American households and 29% of Hispanic households did not use banks. Some people feel that these types of businesses are not good for a community. What do you think? What about your neighborhood? Are there too few banks in your neighborhood? Too many? Or just enough? Use the worksheet on the next page to learn about services in your neighborhood. Work with a partner, or with a team, to find the answers. Decide how you will look for the answers. You might use: the telephone book the Internet a directory from the Chamber of Commerce a librarian at the public library You can also interview your friends and family to learn where they cash checks and take care of money matters. Work with your team to decide how to do this research. * Foundations, Larry, Peter Rufano, and Patricia Walker, Collaborating with Congregations, Harvard Business Review, July/August 1999.
