IOLTA/PLAN Team Up for Justice at the Bank

The Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network (PLAN) has initiated a social media awareness campaign that features attorneys who are supporting civil legal aid by selecting an IOLTA Platinum Leader Bank for their IOLTA trust accounts. Platinum Leader Banks are financial institutions that agree to pay a premium interest rate on IOLTA deposits, resulting in increased funding for civil legal aid. It is especially critical to highlight this opportunity given the drastically low interest rate environment we find ourselves facing at a time when demand for civil legal aid is increasing as a result of the COVID crisis. Specifically, PLAN is featuring attorneys that participate in the IOLTA Board’s “I Bank on Justice” campaign, and will also be featuring individual firms and participating community banks.
