I’d like to open a current account.
Certainly. May I see your social security and your ID, please.
Here you are. I wonder how much interest can I earn from a current account.
Oh, current account don’t pay out interest.
Why is that?
It’s primarily designed for business transactions. That is, writing checks to pay for bills, buying things and sending money.
We won’t expect a large amount of deposit in a current account.
I see. How do I draw money for my own use then?
In that case you can write yourself a cash check and draw money for yourself.
