Banking and Money
There are many options for managing your money. Many people choose to put their money in an account in their name at a bank, savings and loan association or credit union. The advantage of having a bank account is that it’s safer than carrying cash and it helps you keep track of your money. A checking account allows you to use checks to pay your bills or make a purchase, and a savings account allows you to save the money you’re not using and earn interest on it.

Social Security and Work
Everyone living in the United States needs a social security number. You need this number to do many things: get a job, open a bank account or get a driver’s license.
