If you put your money in a savings account is safer because it is insured. Banks insure your money (up to $100,000) through the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

This means that even if the bank goes out of business (which is very rare!) your money will still be there. Basically, it works like this:
•You open a savings account at the bank.

•The bank pays you interest on the money that you deposit and leave in that account.

•The bank then loans that money out to other people, only they charge a slightly higher interest rate on the loan than what they pay you for your account

The difference in interest they pay you verses the interest they charge others is part of how they stay in business. Types of Savings Accounts: Financial Institutions and Savings Accounts... The amount of interest your money earns in a savings account often depends on the type of financial institution you have selected and the type of account.
