Banking

Financial counselors can work with you to create a financial plan to meet your goals. Based on your individual situation, counselors can help you:

  • Learn how a bank account can help you save money on fees (check cashing, money orders, wire transfers, and remittances)
  • Ensure you have an affordable bank account
  • Identify ways to lower how much you pay in bank fees
  • Help you open a bank account if you do not have one
  • Help fix bank accounts in Chexsystems

Counselors can also provide referrals to other community resources to help meet any needs you may have.
