Back to Finance Glossary | Previous PageThe term demand deposit refers to checking account services that allow depositors to write checks to pay for goods and services.
The depository institution offering this service must honor the check immediately upon presentation.
Demand deposits are not meant to earn interest or for savings, but for the convenience of a business or person to perform transactions. Therefore, demand deposits usually do not bear interest.
