2.2.4 Your account statement
Your financial institution will give you a record showing the money that goes into and comes out of your account: your account statement. The type of record depends on the account you have. It could be online or a monthly statement that is mailed to you. (Your financial institution may charge a fee for paper statements.) Some accounts give you a passbook in which you can print the transactions at a teller machine or in your branch.
The account statement will look similar to the statement below, whether it is printed on paper or displayed on a computer screen.
Check your account statement at least once a month, either online or on your printed record. Watch for any transactions you don't recognize. This is your chance to make sure that no one has used your account improperly, and that there are no mistakes.
If you find any unusual transactions, first check your own records to make sure you haven't forgotten anything. If you are sure the statement is wrong, contact your financial institution and explain what the problem is.
