Background:  One in four Californians are unbanked or underbanked, meaning they lack access to basic financial services, like checking and savings accounts, that are essential to financial stability. In 2021, California took an important step to ensure that all residents have access to free basic banking services with the passage of AB 1177 which created the CalAccount Blue Ribbon Commission. The Commission and Treasurer’s Office are now tasked with conducting an analysis and the best way to implement the CalAccount program, a fee and penalty-free financial services program. For more information on the CalAccount program and the hundreds of community and labor organizations united to make it a reality, please visit

Join us to provide testimony and help demonstrate the need for a fee- and penalty-free option for all Californians, regardless of their financial or immigration status. Share your experiences and make a difference!

Don’t miss this opportunity to help close the financial access gap. We look forward to your participation in bringing free banking to all Californians.
