Santander Bank, N.A. to Adopt New Policies Governing Use of ChexSystems
Feb 20 15
Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced that Santander Bank, N.A. has agreed to adopt new policies governing its use of ChexSystems. Santander's new policies are expected to allow thousands of additional New Yorkers and consumers nationwide to open bank accounts by September 30, 2015. The change comes amid concerns that screenings by ChexSystems and other consumer-reporting agencies, which are used by most of the nation's banks, adversely affect lower-income applicants and force them to turn to high-cost alternative financial services like check-cashing outlets. Santander now joins Capital One and Citibank as the third bank to commit to overhaul its use of ChexSystems. The three banks operate a combined 613 branches across New York State and 2,822 branches nationwide.
