In traditional banking, the most invested customers subsidize the least. We think this is unfair and that the best customers should be rewarded not penalized. Opening and maintaining a bank account costs money. For a bank to be profitable, they have to cover the costs of all the bank accounts that are open but not used with the ones that are. This can be a very significant proportion of total accounts at any bank; for some new digital banks, the majority are unused.
Unifimoney is built to ensure that we can maximize returns to our users on their money. Every dollar we spend on an account that is unused is a dollar we cannot give back to our active users. To minimize this cost, we require customers to deposit an initial $100 and then give them 3 months to migrate their salary from their current provider to Unifimoney. By month four, any account that does not meet either the monthly deposit or minimum balance requirements, will be charged a $50-per-month service fee [HS3] until the balance is zero and then closed. This ensures that our active users are never paying the costs of unused accounts.
A lot of digital banks chase user numbers above all else to impress VCs; at Unifimoney, all we want to do is maximize returns for our active users.
Deposit product services, including the Unifimoney Debit Card, are offered by UMB Bank, n.a., Member FDIC.
