1 Bank On Everyone is Welcome

2 Consequences of Unbanked $8 billion in fees to alternative servicers (includes pay day loan fees) Average charge for cashing paycheck-$40 ($1000-$2000 annually for check cashing services) Low wage worker who never utilized mainstream financial services over 40 year full time work history would spend $40,000 on check cashing services If the $40,000 had been regularly invested in savings bonds, would have $360,000 at retirement!

3 COMMUNITY & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT Why is all of this important to us? According to Consumer Federation of America, a low wage worker (or anyone utilizing pay day loan services) that has a $500 SAVINGS ACCOUNT with a Bank or Credit Union is EIGHT TIMES less likely to utilize a pay day loan or cash advance service

4 COMMUNITY & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT What are the consequences of these statistics to low wage workers? Arent always aware of the benefits available to them Are vulnerable to predatory lenders and alternative financial services: – The unbanked pay 1-10% of salary for check cashing services – Pay day loans cost workers 50 to 400% interest – Paid tax preparation can cost 25%+ of total refund – Unable to accumulate assets through savings without relationship with a financial institution

19 COMMUNITY & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT Underbanked households use of alternative financial services Underbanked households account for 19.4 percent of all banked households By definition, all underbanked households have used an AFS at least once or twice a year Among underbanked households: – 81 percent use non-bank money orders – 30 percent use non-bank check cashing services – 16 percent use payday lending – 16 percent use pawn shops – 13 percent use rent-to-own services – 13 percent have used refund anticipation loans during the past 5 years FDIC National Survey of Unbanked and Underbanked Households

20 COMMUNITY & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT Implications and conclusions Significant proportions of U.S. households are unbanked or underbanked Lower-income and minority populations are disproportionately represented among both groups The proportions vary widely across regions, states and large MSAs Many unbanked households have found it not cost effective to have a bank account, and many underbanked households use transactional AFS due to convenience and cost About half of unbanked households were previously banked and over a quarter of those households became unbanked during the year before the survey was taken Taken together, these results suggest there are significant opportunities for banks to offer financial products specifically tailored to the needs of LMI households FDIC National Survey of Unbanked and Underbanked Households

23 Immigrant Banking Needs In some countries banks are not safe, secure or trusted. Immigrants will be concerned about FDIC insurance and about ready access to their funds. Many send money back to family members in their home country. They may be interested in wire transfer costs. Some lack SSNs and will be interested in knowing about alternative forms of ID (e.g. matricula consular cards). Because of language barriers, some may be uncomfortable writing checks. They will be especially interested in other options, like debit cards and online banking.

24 What is Bank On? The Bank On initiative is a collaborative effort started by the City of San Francisco and the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco about three years ago to address the needs of their citys unbanked and underbanked households. The Bank On program has spread throughout the country and is based on a collaborative effort with local communities and their financial institutions, local governments, community based and nonprofit organizations.

25 COMMUNITY & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT The Bank On Model A Bank On campaign is driven by partnerships – State and Municipal governments – Community-based organizations – Financial institutions and regulators – State, Regional and local Asset Building Coalitions or VITA Sites Innovative solutions are created to reach un- and under- banked individuals, including: – Developing safe, affordable financial products – Creating pathways and supports to assist targeted populations to utilize these products – Conducting outreach campaigns to inform the public about these opportunities
