Description

Did you know that one in 13 households in the U.S. is unbanked? That’s 9.6 million households that aren’t taking advantage of the services offered by financial institutions. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) also found that in 2013 there were a staggering 24.8 million underbanked households, meaning they had bank accounts but also used alternative financial services. Banking – all the services offered by a bank or credit union – allows individuals to deposit funds, transfer money and complete transactions in a secure place with fair terms. Knowing how financial institutions operate and what services they provide is crucial to making the most of your money.
