Demand Deposit

An account from which deposited funds can be withdrawn at any time without any notice to the depository institution.

This account allows you to "demand" your money at any time, unlike a term deposit, which cannot be accessed for a predetermined period (the loan's term).

Most checking and savings accounts are demand deposits, accessible by the account holder at any time.
