LOS ANGELES ‒  OneUnited Bank announces its new Empowerment Network, with more surcharge-free ATMs than any other bank in the country. A historic moment during Black History Month, the nation’s largest Black-owned bank launches the nation’s largest surcharge-free ATM network.

OneUnited now has over 100,000 surcharge-free ATMs, including Chase Bank and Citibank branches and neighborhood retailers such as 7-Eleven, Costco, CVS, Target, and Walgreens. OneUnited continues to break records to empower customers with better access to their money.

The Empowerment Network also includes OneUnited Card Command to empower customers with more control over their OneUnited Bank Visa® Debit Card. Customers can instantly turn on and off their card, get real-time transaction notifications, add their card to their digital wallet, set travel plans, and even set spending limits in the mobile banking app.

“We listened to our customers who want better access and more control over their money,” said Teri Williams, President & Chief Operating Officer of OneUnited Bank. “We’re proud to make history by offering the Empowerment Network, the nation’s largest surcharge-free ATM network, while also providing better card controls through OneUnited Card Command. Quite frankly, we’re elevating the BankBlack Movement by offering best-in-class services and state-of-the-art technology to better meet customer needs.”

OneUnited Bank is the first Black digital bank and the largest Black-owned bank in the country, with offices in Los Angeles, Boston, and Miami. Awarded the highest Bank Enterprise Award by the U.S. Department of Treasury for community development lending ten times, OneUnited Bank is a designated Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI). The bank has financed almost $1 billion in loans – most in low to moderate-income communities such as South Central, Compton, Liberty City, and Roxbury.
