Economic Inclusion

FDIC Economic Inclusion Summit, April 26, 2017 at L. William Seidman Center, Arlington, VA

FDIC, through its Division of Depositor and Consumer Protection, promotes economic inclusion both by making research available, particularly the FDIC National Survey of Unbanked and Underbanked Households, 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 improves consumers’ ability to safely save, build assets, and create wealth; protects them from theft and discriminatory practices; and provides a financial safety net against unforeseen circumstances. Safe and affordable savings and credit solutions from insured depository institutions can improve household financial stability and resilience.
