National Account Standards

The Bank On National Account Standards provide guidelines on over 25 product features that local Bank On coalitions should seek in their financial institution partnerships and that financial institutions should consider when developing basic transaction accounts. The guidelines include both core and recommended features, and focus on safety, cost, accessibility, and functionality.

The Standards provide guidance to local Bank On coalitions promoting banking access in their communities as they negotiate partnerships with financial institutions. Accounts that meet the Standards are appropriately designed for, and responsive to, the needs of tens of millions of consumers with low- and moderate-incomes. 

 

Bank On Guiding Principles

Based on local efforts and lessons learned, the CFE Fund put together these Bank On Guiding Principles to outline fundamental shared ideals of the Bank On movement and local coalition priorities.
