The FDIC promotes financial inclusion both by making research available, particularly How America Banks: Household Use of Banking and Financial Services, and by helping to build and strengthen positive connections between insured financial institutions and consumers, depositors, small businesses, and communities.
Access to safe, affordable, and sustainable insured transaction and savings accounts, along with quality financial education, improves consumers’ ability to safely save, build assets, and create wealth. Safe and affordable savings and credit solutions from insured depository institutions can improve household financial stability and resilience. Our work is guided by the Economic Inclusion Strategic Plan - PDF.
