Personal Account

A bank account one uses for purposes other than business. One uses a personal account for one's daily and regular expenses, such as rent, utilities, debt service and groceries. One also uses a personal account for one's savings that have not been invested. Most personal accounts are thus divided into checking and savings accounts.
