Yes, if a creditor wins a lawsuit and is granted a judgment, said judgment can be enforced as a bank account garnishment. A joint account (even a marital one) is subject to attachment to the extent of the debtor's share.

A credit card account comes with a credit card, which can be used to authorize purchases of any value. The checking account does not come with a credit card and is used for issuing checks.

In the age of identity theft, it is hard to tell what you should give to a credit card company and what you should not. If you don't feel comfortable giving the credit card company your checking account information, then you shouldn't. Most credit card companies base your approval on a credit card via your credit score. If the company seems fishy or pushy about getting your checking account information, then you should tell them politely that you aren't interested and try going with a brand of credt card that you know and trust.

Credit scores have nothing to do with checking accounts. Unless you've had major overdraft issues with a previous checking account you will have no problems opening a new one.

Checking accounts are not normally reflected on a credit report.

No, a checking account is not correlated to your credit score. The only reason why you have to give your social security # is to prove that you have no outstanding debt with any other banks. ______________________________________ Actually, there is a correlation. Having a checking account doesn't improve your credit score, but you can be accepted or denied an account based on it. If you have bad credit, or no credit, you may be denied from a variety of bank checking accounts. I was told by my lawyer it does improve your credit if you keep your checking account in good standings he said the bank report it monthly to the crdit bureaus thats just what i was told

There is a way to earn interest on a checking accounts and can be added to the account. You will have to back through a credit union.

Having a checking account has no effect on your credit score. Bouncing your checks has a big effect on your credit score.

If it is a joint account, they can take the funds in that account. Depending on which state you live in, there are different exemption rules. In Michigan, they can take all the funds, even if the account is joint, as long as it has your name on it. If your husband had an account with his name only (which is what you may want to set up immediately), then they could not take those funds. Your husband is not legally responsible for your credit card debts if your name is the only name on the credit card. Check with your state's laws regarding collection and exemptions.

No creditor can freeze anyone's assets without court authorization--disability or not.

Not usually. Unless it includes NSF charges. It may affect the terms and charges though, for period of time. Actually, I was turned down for a checking account at Bank of America because my credit was poor, so that is not true. It can effect you getting a checking account. It just depends where. I have to go to a credit union to get an account.

Most credit unions will allow anyone that is eligible for membership to open an account. It depends on what they use to verify a checking account when opened as to if they will allow you to open a checking. Some use a credit report and some use chexsystems, ews or telecheck

None. Even secured cards require a specified balance in a checking account, before they are granted.

Start with a job, Open a savings account and save regularly, Open a checking account and manage it carefully, and Apply to a local department store or a gasoline company for a credit card.

You can be, although it will be undesirable to the person you're sharing the account with.

Chex Systems Bites is a great site for a listing of banks where you can open a checking account with bad credit. They also have information on how the Chex System works and give recommendations on different banks. You can find the website at http://chexsys.tripod.com/goodbanks.html. Many, if not most banks, do not check your credit for a simple checking account. What they do check is if you've defaulted on a checking account at another bank. If another bank has reported you (rightly or wrongly) you will have a hard time getting an account.

Your checking account is linked to a routing number that your bank sends to a credit company when you apply for a debit card. When you swipe your card in the machine and enter your pin, the credit takes the money in your account and gives you an equal amount out at the machine.

Checking your credit history allows you to make credit reports and check credit scores which are crucial for getting loans. It is also important to check that your account is not being used wrongfully.
