FDIC Hosts Webinar on the Impact of COVID-19 on Iowa Credit Scores and How Banks Can Help

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, and Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) will host a webinar that will highlight the current state of credit during the COVID-19 pandemic; and how building credit can lead to banking the unbanked and expanding bank product usage for the underbanked. This webinar will review credit best practices, resources and potential partner organizations to support building credit in Iowa.

The webinar will also promote collaborations between banks and community stakeholders helping low- and moderate-income families build credit. The webinar will highlight how helping low- and moderate-income families build credit can be coupled to bank the unbanked and increase bank usage for underbanked families. The FDIC will outline the new unbanked statistics for Iowa.
