Although your checking account may handle your everyday expenses, there are several good reasons to have extra money in a savings account.
Funds in your savings account are readily accessible, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insures up to a maximum $250,000 for aggregated accounts.
Savings accounts are good for emergencies, unexpected expenses and big purchases.
