Bank On Rubber City

Bank On connects Summit County residents to safe and affordable banking products.

Safe & Affordable Banking

Banking access is one key to financial empowerment. Without a bank account, residents pay too much for basic financial transactions, making it harder to build savings and manage debt. Bank On Rubber City, a coalition led by United Way of Summit & Medina and the City of Akron, is committed to helping residents access safe and affordable banking products and services.

The Importance of Banking

The average unbanked person spends 5% of net income on unnecessary fees for alternative financial services. This can amount to $40,000 over a lifetime—a significant amount for those who can least afford it.

People with mainstream bank accounts are more likely to:

  • Keep more of their earnings
  • Develop consistent savings habits
  • Have access to budgeting and tracking tools
  • Access to affordable credit options
