FDIC economic inclusion panel meets Wednesday

The panel that advises the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) on ways to expand access to banking services for underserved populations is slated to meet Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern.

During the meeting, which will be viewable via webcast, the FDIC Advisory Committee on Economic Inclusion (ComE-IN) will discuss updates from committee members about key challenges facing their communities or organizations. Also slated, the agency said, are panel discussions on opportunities for entities that administer government benefit programs to harness “bankable moments” as a successful approach to encourage unbanked households to join the banking system; and presentations by banks and community–based organizations about programs designed to increase bank access.

The FDIC also said it has added Susan Weinstock, president and CEO of the Consumer Federation of America (Washington, D.C.) as its newest member.
