Whereas more tantalizing avenues like stocks and other high-risk investments can pose serious pitfalls, savings accounts represent a less flashy but more secure option. That said, although the dependability and benefits of savings accounts have never been in question, the emergence of online banking has made it difficult to select the optimal account.

Benefits of a Savings Account

One of the jobs of a parent is to teach their children how to save money; quite often, this involves household chores and a piggy bank. While this is a good primer on instilling financially wise habits, for some reason, many parents neglect to continue this financial tutelage as their child grows into a teenager and then adulthood. As a result, far too many people enter their adult years without a savings account or a significant amount of money in the account they do have.
