Welcome and Training Overview (10 mins.) Welcome participants and review the purpose of the seminar and the dayÕs agenda.<br><br> Hand out folders to participants. Group Introductions (15 mins.) Ask participants to introduce themselves and say what they hope to get out of the seminar. ¥ Write down participantsÕ expectations on the easel pad.<br><br> (This activity will serve as a brief icebreaker to help workshop participants get to know each other and feel more comfortable, and to give you an idea of what participants are expecting from the seminar.) Bank accounts (10 mins.) Encourage participants to discuss some of the advantages of having a bank account. Discuss the differences between banks and credit unions. (See manual, page 2.) Direct attention to the ÒYou Can Bank on ItÓ fact sheet in participantsÕ folders.<br><br> Questions to generate discussion: ¥ Why do some people choose not have bank accounts? ¥ What are some advantages of having a bank account? ¥ What is the difference between a bank and a credit union?<br><br> Advantages to having a bank or credit union account include: ¥ Your money is safe from loss, theft or fire. MoneyWi$e Banking Basics Seminar Package page 6 of 24 ¥ Each account is insured up to $100,000 by the FDIC (banks) or the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (credit unions). ¥ Canceled checks are proof that you paid a bill.<br><br> ¥ Using check-cashing stores and money orders is more expensive than paying bank fees. ¥ A bank account can help you keep track of how you spend your money. Key points about credit unions: ¥ A credit union is a non-profit cooperative financial institution owned and controlled by its members, while a bank is a for-profit company that makes money from charging fees and lending money.<br><br> ¥ Credit unions serve groups that share something in common, such as their profession, place of worship or neighborhood. ¥ Credit unions provide checking and savings accounts and loans, often at better rates than commercial banks. ¥ÊTo find a credit union that you can join, call the Credit Union National Association at 800-358-5710, or visit its web site (www.cuna.org).<br><br> Account verification services (15 mins.) Discuss what account verification services are and how to get a copy of your ChexSystems report. (See manual, page 5.) Questions to generate discussion: ¥ Has anyone you know ever been denied a bank account when they tried to open one? ¥ How do banks find out about your past account history?<br><br> ¥ What can you do if you are denied a bank account because of incorrect information? Key points on account verification services: ¥ ChexSystems is the major national account verification company. ¥ If you ever overdrew your checking account and then abandoned it while you still had a negative balance, you might be listed in the ChexSystems database.<br><br> MoneyWi$e Banking Basics Seminar Package page 7 of 24 ¥ Reports about overdrafts or closed accounts remain on file for five years. ¥ You can get a copy of your report ($8 in most states) by contacting ChexSystems (800-428-9623 or www.chexhelp.com). ¥ You have the right to dispute inaccurate information in your account verification reportÑyour report comes with instructions about how to do so.<br><br> You can get a free copy of your ChexSystems report if: ¥ You have been denied a bank account in the past 60 days because of information provided by the company. ¥ Your checks were stolen and used by an impostor, or you are the victim of another type of bank fraud. ChexSystems Sample Report Activity (15 mins.) Ask participants to take out the ChexSystems sample report.<br><br> Review the report with the group. Following is a guide to help you explain the report: Reported information: This section contains reports of accounts that have been mishandled by the consumer or reported for outstanding debts or bank fraud committed by the consumer. The information is submitted to ChexSystems by financial institutions that subscribe to ChexSystems services.<br><br> ChexSystems keeps this kind of negative information in its files for five years. NSF (non-sufficient funds) are bounced checks. Drivers license validation: Each state provides this information about how it configures drivers license numbers in order to help businesses spot forged licenses.<br><br> Drivers license verification: The name and date of birth of the individual to whom a certain drivers license number was issued. Some states refuse to provide this information to ChexSystems. MoneyWi$e Banking Basics Seminar Package page 8 of 24 Consumer initiated inquiries: Here, you are the Òconsumer.Ó This lists the companies you gave permission to check your banking and credit history, such as when you filled out an application that allowed a lender or credit card issuer to access your credit report.<br><br> Customer initiated inquiries: Here, the company that subscribes to ChexSystemsÕ services is called the Òcustomer.Ó This section can include the names of your existing creditors or companies who prescreened you to find out if they wanted to offer you a credit card or other bank product. Companies must have a legally permissible purpose in order to access this information about you. These listings are seen by you, but not by the companies who are allowed to access your report.<br><br> Retail information: This information is provided to ChexSystems by a company called Shared Check Authorization Network (SCAN), which can be reached at 800-262-7771. It lists returned unpaid checks you have written to merchants and other businesses who report it to SCAN. Check printing order history: This is a list of the check orders you have placed within the past three years to help counteract check fraud.<br><br> Break (15 mins.) Announce a 15-minute break. Checking Accounts (15 mins.) Review the basics of checking accounts, including checks, ATM cards and joint accounts. (See manual, page 6.) Discuss what debit cards are and how they differ from credit cards.<br><br> (See manual, page 10.) Questions to generate discussion: ¥ What kinds of things can you do with a checking account? ¥ Is it possible to get a checking account with no minimum balance? ¥ What is the difference between a debit card and a credit card?<br><br> MoneyWi$e Banking Basics Seminar Package page 9 of 24 ¥ Are you responsible if someone steals your debit card and uses it to buy things? Also review these features and types of accounts (See manual, page 6): ¥ Free checking. ¥ Direct deposit.<br><br> ¥ Electronic transfer accounts (ETAs). ¥ Basic or Lifeline accounts. ¥ Internet banking.<br><br> ¥ Online bill payment. ¥ Low minimum balance accounts for seniors or students. You can use your debit card in two ways: ¥ At an ATM or a point-of-sale (POS) terminal (your personal identification number, or PIN, is needed for both of these transactions).<br><br> ¥ At stores and restaurants that accept credit cards, without providing your PIN. You will be asked to sign a receipt. The money will be immediately deducted from your checking account.<br><br> If your debit card is lost or stolen: ¥ Alert your bank as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more money you might be responsible for if an unauthorized person uses your card to buy things. Check Writing Activity (10 mins.) Ask participants to take out the check writing activity sheet from their folders.<br><br> In this activity, participants practice writing a check and then entering it into a sample checkbook register. When participants have written the check to Peter Perkins and deducted it in the checkbook register, the new balance will be $1,343.87. Some reasons that it is important to enter the checks you write in your checkbook register: MoneyWi$e Banking Basics Seminar Package page 10 of 24 ¥ So that you donÕt bounce checks.<br><br> ¥ So that you know how much money you have in the bank. ¥ So that you can track your spending and stick to a budget . Savings Accounts (15 mins.) Discuss what a savings account is, how interest works and what the difference is between simple and compound interest.<br><br> (See manual, page 6.) Questions to generate discussion: ¥ What is the difference between a savings account and a checking account? ¥ What are the advantages of a savings account? Annual percentage rate (APR): ¥ The amount of money you would earn if you left your money on deposit for one year.<br><br> There are two kinds of interest: ¥ Simple interest means that you only earn interest on your initial deposit . ¥ Compound interest allows you to earn interest not only on your initial deposit, but also on the interest you earn as you go along. Session Two (Two Hours) Welcome (5 mins.) Greet participants and welcome them back.<br><br> (This time will allow the group to reconnect with each other and with you.) Certificates of Deposit (CDs) (10 mins.) Explain what a CD is and that you have to leave your money in the CD for a set period of time in order to earn interest. (See manual, page 7.) Questions to generate discussion: MoneyWi$e Banking Basics Seminar Package page 11 of 24 ¥ What is a certificate of deposit (CD)? ¥ What are the advantages of a CD over a savings account?<br><br> Key points about CDs: ¥ The longer the term of your CD, the higher your interest rate will be. ¥ If you withdraw your money before the term ends (maturity), you will lose interest and may have to pay a penalty . Safe deposit boxes (15 mins.) Discuss safe deposit boxes and what should and should not be kept in one.<br><br> (See manual, page 12.) Questions to generate discussion: ¥ What are some things that you might keep in a safe deposit box? Suggested things you might want to keep in a safe deposit box: ¥ Copies of home and auto insurance policies. ¥ Birth, marriage and death certificates .<br><br> ¥ Mortgages, leases and other important contracts. ¥ Stock and bond certificates and certificates of deposit (CDs). ¥ Valuable jewelry.<br><br> What you should not keep in a safe deposit box: ¥ The originals of your will and life insurance policies. Your safe deposit box might be sealed at the time of your death and your survivors will need a courtÕs permission to open it. Opening a Bank Account (20 mins.) Review what to consider when you are opening a bank account.<br><br> (See manual, page 15.) Questions to generate discussion: ¥ What are some questions you should keep in mind when you are deciding on a bank or credit union? MoneyWi$e Banking Basics Seminar Package page 12 of 24 ¥ What do you need to bring with you when you go to a bank or credit union to open a new account? Ask these important questions when you are planning on opening an account: ¥ What is the minimum I need to open an account?<br><br> ¥ What is the interest rate on the account? ¥ Is there a monthly fee? ¥ Is there any way to avoid monthly fees?<br><br> ¥ What happens if my account balance falls below the minimum requirement? ¥ Is there a maximum number of checks I can write each month? ¥ Is there a fee for using your ATMs?<br><br> When you go to the branch to open a new account, bring: ¥ Photo identification, such as a driverÕs license, state ID card or passport. ¥ Proof of your address, such as a utility bill or lease. ¥ Your Social Security number for tax purposes.<br><br> Once you have an account, write down and deduct in your checkbook: ¥ Every check you write. ¥ Every ATM or debit card transaction you make. ¥ Any bank fees you pay.<br><br> Ideas on how to keep banking costs down: ¥ Ask if you can combine the balances in your checking and savings accounts to meet the minimum balance requirement and avoid maintenance fees. ¥ Save on ATM fees by using your own bankÕs machines or those owned by banks that donÕt charge fees to non-customers. If you canÕt avoid a fee, take out larger sums less frequently to avoid repeat fees on numerous smaller withdrawals.<br><br> ¥ Use direct deposit for your paycheck or government benefits check. The money is sent to your account electronically. Direct deposit is faster, safer and more convenient and may make you eligible for a free account.<br><br> ¥ Buy checks from a mail-order company instead of your bank. ¥ Ask the bank to reverse occasional late fees or bounced check fees. MoneyWi$e Banking Basics Seminar Package page 13 of 24 ¥ An optional bank service called overdraft protection can save you from bouncing checks.<br><br> Transfer fees and/or interest usually apply but are a lot lower than bounced check fees. There are mail-order sources for buying checks for less: ¥ Checks in the Mail, 877-397-1541, www.citm.com ¥ÊCurrent Checks, 800-426-0822, www.currentchecks.com At this time, point out the ÒChoosing a bank or credit union accountÓ worksheet that participants can take home and use as a guide when applying for bank accounts. Sample Savings Account Application (20 mins.) Ask participants to take out the sample savings account application.<br><br> This is a sample application for an interest-bearing account. Following is some information about the features of the account that should be discussed: Ownership: ¥ If the account is in one personÕs name, check ÒSole Owner.Ó ¥ If it is a joint account, check ÒJoint Owner.Ó ¥ The ÒPrimary OwnerÓ is the first owner listed on the account. ¥ Being the Primary Owner on a joint account is a matter of choice.<br><br> ¥ The primary owner will receive an annual statement of interest (1099- INT) for tax purposes. ¥ A copy of the 1099-INT will be furnished to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). W-9 Certification: ¥ Because the money in the account will be earning taxable income, the applicant will be asked for ÒW-9 Certification,Ó or ÒRequest for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification,Ó a requirement of the IRS.<br><br> ¥ Banks are required to ask all interest-bearing account holders for this information. ¥ ÒBackup withholdingÓ is an IRS requirement for people who have underpaid or been negligent in paying their taxes. MoneyWi$e Banking Basics Seminar Package page 14 of 24 ¥ Any firm that deals with your money in taxable transactions, such as interest-bearing accounts, is required to withhold (and submit to the IRS) a percentage of the proceeds on the assumption that the entire amount is a taxable gain.<br><br> ¥ When you file your taxes, you get the excess back. Backup withholding is reported to you on Form 1099-INT or Form 1099-DIV under ÒFederal income tax withheld.Ó ¥ÊThere is a substantial penalty if you lie to a bank or other company about whether you are subject to backup withholding. Optional Services/ ATM Cards ¥ Optional means that you do not have to have the service unless you want to.<br><br> ¥ Savings account holders can request an ATM or debit card so that they can access their money at an ATM. ¥ It is not necessary to have an ATM or debit card. ¥ Note that savings account holders can also go into a branch of their bank and use one of the bankÕs withdrawal or deposit slips to make a withdrawal or deposit.<br><br> ¥ If the account holder already has a checking account at MoneyWi$e Bank, they can ask that it be linked to the new savings account so that they can use their existing ATM or debit card to access the account. ATM Fees ¥ Explain that a ÒforeignÓ bank is not in another countryÑit is any bank that is not affiliated with the MoneyWi$e Bank. ¥ When customers of one bank use another bankÕs ATMs, usually they are charged twice, once by their bank and once by the foreign bank.<br><br> ¥ These two fees can add up to as much as $4 on a single withdrawal. ¥ The MoneyWi$e Bank offers an annual fee option that for $24 provides account holders with five Òforeign bankÓ ATM transactions each month, or 60 per year, at 40¢ a piece. The regular fee for each foreign bank ATM transaction is $1.50 each.<br><br> ¥ This annual fee option is not a good deal for anyone who is going to use MoneyWi$e BankÕs ATMs exclusively or who is going to make very few foreign bank ATM transactions during the year. MoneyWi$e Banking Basics Seminar Package page 15 of 24 ¥ If applicants do not want the $24 annual fee option, they can check Òpay as you goÓ and be charged $1.50 each time they use a foreign bankÕs ATM. They may also be charged by the foreign bank.<br><br> ¥ Point out that all visits to a MoneyWi$e Bank ATM are free. Signing the Application ¥ Point out to participants that by signing the application they are also giving the bank legal permission to access their credit report or ChexSystems report. Break (15 mins.) Announce a 15-minute break.<br><br> Resources/How to complain (15 mins.) Discuss what to do if your bank or credit union makes a mistake, such as a mixed-up deposit, no-show bill payment or double debit. (See manual, page 18.) Tips on how to complain: ¥ Complain as soon as possible. ¥ Start by calling a customer service representative or visiting your bank.<br><br> Ask for the personÕs name and write it down. ¥ During the conversation, offer a solution and ask the representative to correct the problem by a certain date. ¥ DonÕt lose your temper.<br><br> Raising your voice or making threats will not gain the cooperation of bank employees. ¥ Summarize your discussion with the representative in a letter and send it to the bank, registered mail receipt requested. Attach documentation of your complaint.<br><br> (Make copies for the bankÑdo not give away your originals.) The letter may help prove you took timely action. If you are not satisfied with the bankÕs response, you can complain to the bankÕs regulator: MoneyWi$e Banking Basics Seminar Package page 16 of 24 ¥ Banks with national in the name or N.A. after the name are regulated by the Comptroller of the Currency, U.S.<br><br> Department of the Treasury, 800- 613-6743, www.occ.treas.gov ¥ Federal savings and loans and savings banks are regulated by the Office of Thrift Supervision, 800-842-6929, www.ots.treas.gov ¥ State-chartered banks are regulated by state banking authorities.
