Bank On Bluegrass helps you responsibly manage your finances

Bank On Bluegrass is a community program designed by United Way to help individuals open a bank account who have had difficulties getting an account or keeping an account open in the past.

Why Open an Account?
If you don’t have a bank account, you could pay up to $40,000 in fees over a lifetime. When you have a bank account, you can build a positive credit history, pay your bills online, or with a check for free, and eliminate the risk of theft or loss.

How to Open an Account?
1. Call 2-1-1 or visit to learn more.
2. Learn about banking basics online, through our financial education partners, or personal bankers at a participating bank.
3. Open your Bank On Bluegrass account! Bring a state-issued ID. Most financial partners will also request a second form of ID.
