Online Account Opening

  • Can I save my application and finish it later?

    Yes. When you begin an application for an Amalgamated Bank account, you will be asked to create a username and password that will be associated with your account application. If you wish to save your progress and continue later, you must complete the fields on the page on which you are working, and click the “Save and continue later” button at the bottom of the page. When you wish to log back in to complete your application, you may resume your application by using this link and entering the username and password you created when you began the application. Please note that the username and password you create for your account application are different from the username and password you will use to access Online Banking. You will create a username and password for Online Banking upon enrolling in Online Banking. If you need help along the way, call us at 800-662-0860.

  • Do I have to be a union member to bank with Amalgamated?

    No, you do not have to be a member of a union to bank with us.

  • How long will it take to receive my ATM/Debit Card?

    You will receive your Debit or ATM Card within ten business days after we have approved your application and opened your account.

  • Is there a minimum balance I need to deposit or maintain to avoid a fee? What are the monthly fees?

    Please refer to your Terms and Conditions.

  • What happens if I do not agree to the terms and conditions of the disclosure?

    If you do not agree to the terms and conditions in our disclosure, you will not be able to open an account with us.

  • What if I do not have any of the pieces of identification on your list?

    If you do not have any of the identification documents we have requested, you may still be able to open an account at one of our branches. Before you come to see us, please call the branch where you plan to open your account to discuss the identification documentation you are missing.

  • What is an ownership type?

    An ownership type indicates whether an account has one signer (an individual account) or two signers (a joint account), and whether or not a beneficiary has been designated. If you are opening a Checking account, you cannot designate a beneficiary.
