#GetBanked to Receive Child Tax Credits and Other Government Payments

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) encourages you to open a checking account to receive Child Tax Credits that begin in July. 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 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.
