A savings passbook requires you to come to the bank to have your interest printed into your passbook as well as process transactions such as withdrawals and deposits. Statement savings accounts allow you the freedom to process transactions without the burden of a passbook that may get lost or stolen. You simply need to know your account number then fill out a deposit or withdrawal slip supplied at your local branch. Statement savings does allow you to have an ATM (debit) card so that you may withdrawal money at any ATM. You do not have that option with a passbook savings.
