How checking accounts work
Keeping Track of Your Balance
It is important to keep track of your checking account balance if you do not want to pay large fees for “bouncing” checks. You can keep track of how much money is in your account by:
- online (Internet)
- in person
The best way to keep track is by using the check register you get with your checks. That will help you keep track of how much money is available for you to withdraw.
Write your checks and deposits in the register. Also write in any debit card charges, ATM withdrawals or automatic deductions.
