What is a savings account? George Barany, director of financial education at AmericaSaves.org, a non-profit organization that promotes saving, explains a savings account this way: “It's a safe place that allows you to get money out of your pocket, out of your house,” and beyond the greedy reach of temptation. Interest savings accounts are not get-rich-quick (or even get-rich-slow) vehicles. They're low-risk accounts that allow you to grow your savings at a rate specified by your financial institution. Savings accounts are designed to provide you with an easy way to access interest-bearing funds. By contrast, a CD is only accessible at term maturity.
