Los Angeles Saves

Set a Goal. Make a Plan. Take Action

Throughout Los Angeles, people just like you are proving you can start small and think big. Los Angeles Savers are setting financial goals, tracking their spending, and taking control of their financial future. These tips and tools can help you set goals, develop strategies to reach those goals, and start saving. So what are you waiting for?

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) encourages you to open a checking account to receive Tax Credits. With an insured bank account, you can receive stimulus funds and tax refunds securely and more quickly via direct deposit. Having a bank account can also provide access to safer and lower-cost financial products. 
The #GetBanked https://www.fdic.gov/getbanked/website has helpful resources in English and Spanish, including the top reasons to #GetBanked, a checklist to help you choose the best type of account for your needs, and links to FDIC partners where you can open an account online or at a local branch. With a banking relationship, you can receive and send money, pay bills online, all with no check-cashing fees.
There’s a better way. Help promote the importance of a banking relationship by following FDIC.gov on social media, @FDICgov and #GetBanked
