How Betterbank Works

Each time you do a transaction using your debit card, the merchant pays the bank and us a small fee (called interchange). We use this to keep our lights on and serve you without charging a single dollar.

Why do we need a
betterbank?

Americans continue to pay billions in bank fees while one in four of us skip necessary medical treatments because we can't afford it. All of deserve a fairer access to our money and an emergency fund when we're down.
