An account is the representation of a bank account inside a financial or gig institution. A user can have one or more accounts in an institution.

For example, one user (or link) can have a checking account, several credit cards, and a loan account.

Querying for a user's account information is useful as you can get information regarding:

  • what types of accounts the user has
  • the balance for each account (savings, checking, credit card, loan, and so on)
