The FDIC Hosts Expanding Availability of Low-Cost Transaction Accounts in Northern & Central California

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) will host a webinar to encourage the development of low-cost transaction accounts offered by banks to meet the needs of unbanked communities in Northern and Central California.  With many families receiving Federal Child Tax Credit payments and California’s Golden State Stimulus in 2021, banks have an opportunity to facilitate timely payments and to create long-term banking relationships. As almost five percent (5%) of Californian’s are unbanked, expanding availability and access to low-cost transaction accounts will decrease California’s unbanked rate and improve household financial stability.
