Bank on California is an informational program to educate consumers about opening and using bank accounts. Having a bank account is important and beneficial to a person's financial security and can save money over time.

Bank on California is made of many city and regional efforts comprised of Community Based Organizations (CBO), Financial Institutions (FI) and Government. Each region’s local personnel will be happy to discuss the reasons why you need an account, how to open an account, and what banks and credit unions are participating.
