2 thoughts on “Why are so Many New Yorkers Still Under-Banked?

  1. I did not have proper id and so i applied for and recieved my idnyc card. However no bank would accept it as id to open an account, that is no major bank. I did finally open one at Amagamated in my neighborhood which has now closed and it’s impossible for me to get to the new assigned branch.i would like a list of banks in my area that accept idnyc so i can open another account. I live in the Harlem area. This article has been extremely informative. For someone who has worked for over 40 years still in the work force and has fallen on financial hardship numerous times this is good news.
