In all probability, one should have only one account in tbe bank near the residence and if the bank is providing ATM card more the better. However, some people have one account near the residence and the other near their place of work.

Ideally, a person should not have more than one bank account. Preferably keep the oldest one, because the oldest one can impact your credit score.
