Utilizing a mixed method approach, this study addressed the overarching research question, "How are banking perceptions and behaviors associated with financial knowledge of recently released offenders?" Results from this research revealed that trust, trepidation, prior banking experience, and barriers to banking are among the emergent themes in this study. Implications are provided for policy and practice, such as banking policies to alleviate barriers and simulated financial education activities to inform banking, that could improve inmates' financial preparedness to transition back into mainstream society.
