Understanding Your Bank Statement

Josh had opened his checking account a little over a month ago. He was getting comfortable writing checks. He had been good at keeping track of his deposits and withdrawals. He had even used his debit card a few times.

Josh had finally gotten his bank statement in the mail. Kate, who worked in the office at his bank, had been helping him with his new checking account. She had promised to help him read and understand his bank statement. He arrived at the bank with his statement and his check register.

"Hello, Josh," Kate said. "It's nice to see you again."

"Okay, let's get started," Kate said.
