Why do we need it? TCEE Grade 6 Lesson 1 Best Payment Option: Debit or Credit 8 9 The student is expected to: Math 6.14B distinguish between debit cards and credit cards 10 TCEE Grade 6 Lesson 2 Checks and Balances 11 12 The student is expected to: Math 6.14A compare the features and costs of a checking account and a debit card offered by different local financial institutions Math 6.14C balance a check register that includes deposits, withdrawals, and transfers 13 Deposit or Withdrawal Deposit Withdrawal 14 Deposit or Withdrawal in Deposit + out - Withdrawal 15 Identify the Bank Transaction Debbie paid her rent by writing a $400 check to her landlord. Money is automatically transferred into Debbie’s checking account for earnings from her job. Debbie went shopping for some treats for her dog, Bruno, and a new leash at Pet City. When she checked out, she entered her personal identification number (PIN) at the register and paid with the debit card. Debbie wanted cash to pay for the cost of a movie ticket and popcorn. She stopped at an ATM machine, entered a code and took cash out of the machine. Debbie received two checks for her birthday. She went to her bank, filled out a slip and gave the check to the bank teller. 16 Vocabulary Transaction: Any activity with money such as a deposit, a withdrawal, or a transfer. ATM Surcharge: An Automatic Teller Machine (ATM) fee financial institutions charge for withdrawing money. Insufficient Funds: This term describes the circumstance of not having enough money in a checking account to make a payment or to withdraw money. Overdraft fee: This is a fee charged by the financial institution for making a purchase against your checking account in which there is not enough money in the account to cover the payment. 17 18 Overdraft protection example: Debbie had $395 in her checking account when the $400 rent check was processed. $395 - $400 = -$5 -$5 - $25 = -$30 Why is this feature called overdraft protection? 19 20 What is the best option? 21 Activity 6.2-1 SafeMoney Bank Terms: Monthly service fee of $15 is applied if the account falls below $100 Monthly debit card fee of $1 An overdraft fee of $20 for each overdraft. ATM cash withdrawals will be denied if the account has insufficient funds. ATM Surcharge for Local Financial Institutions: MY Credit Union: $3.00 Wise Bank: $2.00 22 23 24 My Credit Union Game Rules Shuffle game cards and place them face down in one stack. Each player should have a check register to record his or her transactions. The person with the birthdate latest in the year goes first and the turn to play passes to the next player. Choose the top card in the stack. Document the transaction on your check register. For each transaction, write today’s date. For each check withdrawal write a 2digit check number beginning with 01. Then calculate your balance. Place this card in the discard pile. The game ends after all the cards have been drawn or when a player has filled the check register. The person with the greatest balance is the winner. 25 SPECIAL RULES: If you draw a card that is a check withdrawal and you do not have enough money for the transaction, you must subtract the payment as well as an overdraft fee of $20. Use an additional line to record this overdraft fee if applicable. If you use your debit card to purchase a good or service or to withdraw money and you have insufficient funds, the credit union will decline the card. Put the card in in the discard pile. You lose your turn. If you withdraw cash using your debit card at a bank or credit union that is not My Credit Union, subtract an additional $2.00 for ATM surcharge. Use an additional line to record this surcharge if applicable. 26 CHECK FOR UNDERSTANDING What happens when your checking account balance is low? Why is it so important to keep a record of your transactions and balance? 27 ACTIVITY 6.2-3 Compare the features and costs of a checking account and a debit card offered by different local financial institutions.

Other factors used in determining credit scores include how long you have had each account, the mix of types of credit used (credit cards and loans) and factors related to any new credit account that has recently been opened. 32 Vocabulary Debt to income ratio: A measurement of how much of your income is being spent on debt. Many financial advisors suggest that you keep debt levels below 15 percent of your net income and that debt levels of 20 percent of your net income are dangerously high. This limit does not include mortgage payments. 33 Debt to income ratio example: Monthly net income: $1600 Monthly loan payment on $12,000 loan is $200 Credit card balance of $3000 .

The owner of the credit card will pay for all purchases charged to the card soon after the bill or statement arrives. Purchases using a credit card can also be made on the Internet.

This card has a magnetic strip on the back. The card is swiped through a card reader and a Personal Identification Number (PIN) is entered. This process will allow for the owner of the card to make a payment or withdraw funds. The money is immediately transferred from the owner’s checking account. 96 Methods of Payment Online Banking An electronic payment is a process of using the Internet to make a payment. This process requires that the account owner input secure information via the Internet. Accessing his or her bank account to make a payment means that the money will be transferred out of the account for payment. 97 Methods of Payment Are there any other methods to pay for goods and services? How do consumers decide which payment to use to make a purchase? 98 Vocabulary Insufficient funds - occur when someone tries to purchase an item using a check or debit card without having enough money in his or her bank account.
