BankOn and the Importance of Financial Inclusion
October 21, 2021
The challenge, according to the Bank On website is that “research from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation shows that there are many reasons consumers lack a basic transaction account: not enough money for the minimum balance; distrust of financial institutions; high or unpredictable fees; or identification, credit or banking history problems. Many Americans are driven to use expensive alternative financial services, including check cashers, payday lenders, and pawn shops that charge high fees for financial services that fail to help people get ahead. Without a checking account, families wind up paying too much for basic financial transactions and are hard pressed to build savings and assets.”
Bank On is looking to address this challenge by developing the Bank On National Account standards to provide local programs with a benchmark for account partnerships with financial institutions.
Here at Technisys we believe in financial inclusion, and as a Core banking platform provider, are proud to have committed to making it easier for our bank customers to offer the highly affordable accounts that meet the Bank On National Account Standards.
Technisys and our next gen core and digital banking platform can enable banks and credit unions to create and offer Bank On certified accounts with features that meet the national standards including:
