Financial Institutions and You

Millions of Americans get their first experience with a financial institution through a simple savings account. Eventually, they open other types of accounts at the same institution because it is convenient or familiar or it's where other members of their family do business. Deciding where to house something as valuable as your money is not a decision that should be left to someone or something else. Instead, choosing a home for your money should be a well-informed, personal decision that makes you confident your money is working for you. Don't make that decision quickly and don't make it before you read these.
