Teleconference will dissect results of 2017 unbanked/underbanked survey results

Results of the latest national survey gauging the range and extent of unbanked and underbanked households will be discussed Nov. 28 during a 90-minute teleconference sponsored by the federal insurer of deposits in banks – the agency that sponsors the biennial survey.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) on Friday announced the teleconference (which runs from 2-3:30 p.m.). The agency said that FDIC staff will present results of the 2017 National Survey of Unbanked and Underbanked Households, released on Oct. 23. The results, the FDIC said, provide detailed national, state and local data to inform understanding of access to banking and to support economic inclusion efforts.

The teleconference will also offer a discussion of economic inclusion resources pertinent to community banks, including the Money Smart for Adults financial education program and Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) consideration for activities that benefit underserved communities.

Registration is required for the event.
