New York, New York, UNITED STATES


Radnor, PA, April 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BM Technologies, Inc. (NYSE American: BMTX, BMTX.W), one of the largest digital banking platforms in the country, announced it has already disbursed $377 million in government funds to its customers since March 2020. This indicates that customers are viewing their BM Technologies (BMTX) account as their primary bank. The government funds, including stimulus payments and tax refunds, have been made available to customers up to three days early.* Customers are earning interest on these funds in BM Technologies’ (BMTX) interest-bearing checking accounts.

Launched in January 2015, BM Technologies (BMTX), formerly known as BankMobile, is on a mission to provide a compliant, digital-first banking experience that is simple, affordable and consumer-friendly. The company serves over two million account holders.

While banks were urged to waive fees by federal regulators in 2020, they are expected to collect over $30 billion in fees from last year, with the average charge being $33.47.** In contrast, BM Technologies (BMTX) has no-fee and low-fee accounts.

Additional features of BM Technologies’ (BMTX) accounts include: optional interest-bearing savings accounts; access to more than 55,000 fee-free Allpoint® ATMs; early payday; money management tools; robust mobile apps; and credit such as personal loans and credit cards.

“Our biggest priorities at BM Technologies are financially empowering our customers and using technology to provide them with the best banking experience,” stated Luvleen Sidhu, Chair, CEO and Founder of BM Technologies (BMTX). “During these difficult times, we know how crucial funds are and we are pleased to have already provided our customers with hundreds of millions of dollars of government payments, more quickly than traditional banks. And while these traditional banks have still collected monumental overdraft fees during the pandemic, we have focused our efforts on continuing to build a customer-centric banking experience that does not over-fee its customers.”

BM Technologies (BMTX) has a disruptive, multi-partner distribution model, known as Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS). Today, BM Technologies (BMTX) provides its BaaS platform to colleges and universities through BankMobile Disbursements, which serves approximately one in every three college students in the United States.

Additionally, BM Technologies, Inc. (BMTX) expanded its BaaS strategy with T-Mobile for the launch of T-Mobile MONEY and also executed an agreement with Google to introduce digital bank accounts, which will be available to its customers.
