Bank On Music City
Gain Your Financial Independence
The goal of this program is to help people keep more of what they earn by establishing banking relationships that will send them on a pathway to improved financial success and asset building.
In 2014, 11% of Nashvillians did not have a bank account. To help close the gap, Bank On Music City partners with local non-profit organizations to provide financial education service to the community to ensure a successful banking relationship is established and maintained by the clients. As a result, in 2015 the percentage of unbanked clients fell to 9.3%.
Community partners also offer financial education classes to help you learn how to access safe and affordable banking. These organizations include: Residential Resources Inc., Financial Empowerment Centers, Goodwill Career Solutions, Christian Community Services Inc., the Tennessee Department of Financial Institutions, and the University of Tennessee Extension Program.
Save Money Going to check-cashing companies can cost hundreds of dollars per year. Having an established bank account saves you the money that you would otherwise pay.
Financial Security Your money when in a bank account is insured by the federal government, so it will be protected from events including theft, and in times of crisis.
Start Saving Having an established account makes saving money easier and more convenient, which will put you one step closer to being financially stable.
Build or Rebuild Credit Having a checking and savings account allows you to build a relationship with a financial institution, which can later help you with student, car and home loans.
