    Yes, it’s safe. There may be a lot of objections but it’s best than keeping if under your pillow…

    Yes it is because of the FDIC insures deposits up to $250,000

    Banks don’t gamble your money they use it as collateral to get money to give as mortgages and loans. Banks are essential to business and economic growth. Keeping your money in a bank is good for the economy.

    We can see from the current crisis that it’s not safe. Look at the Bank of Finland
