    Who Gets to Keep the Bank Accounts?

    The rise of automatic debits and payments can make it easier to ensure that your bills are paid and that you avoid some of the delays that come with mail forwarding of hard copies. Electronic payments and online bill pay have been helpful to me as I’ve made two cross-country moves in less than a year.

    However, it occurred to me that all of this automation gets to a point where you might be trapped to one specific bank...
    You might be able to scan and email requisite forms, or go through some other process of having one of the joint account holders removed from the account...

    Interest rates will be higher for MMAs than savings accounts at brick- and-mortar banks, but the difference compared with high- yield savings accounts online is negligible.

    Bottom line: Both an MMA and a high-yield savings account, particularly online, can provide a more liquid alternative to a CD without a huge interest-rate hit...
    That makes these accounts a better pick for any money you need to be able to withdraw quickly and penalty-free, such as an emergency fund.

  • Experian announced this month that it will start offering members in its credit tracking program their FICO scores instead of the Plus credit score...
