Bank On Treasure Valley
Bank On Treasure Valley recognizes and addresses one of the most critical problems in our community:
The average person who doesn’t have a bank account spends 10 percent of his or her net income on alternative financial services.
Without a checking account, the most basic financial tool, unbanked families are hard-pressed to build savings and assets, and to respond to emergencies.
What we offer
Through Bank On, a nonprofit program of United Way of Treasure Valley, it’s a simple process for local individuals to get connected to low-cost, starter checking, savings and loan accounts.
1) Find a class that fits into your schedule.
2) Complete three Bank On class sessions.
3) Receive your certificate.
4) Choose a participating bank or credit union close to you.
5) Start putting money back in your pocket — where it belongs.
NOTE: If you have been involved in fraudulent activity, you may not qualify for a Bank On product.
About the classes
For Bank On certification and the opportunity to set up a checking account, program participants must complete three financial education classes totaling five hours.
