Where you bank makes a difference!

Since every dollar of IOLA interest supports civil legal services for low-income New Yorkers, we encourage attorneys to use a bank that pays a competitive rate on IOLA accounts.

Our Platinum Partner banks have made a special commitment to helping the poor, going beyond minimal compliance with our regulations to pay very competitive rates.

Though you can open an IOLA account with any of the banks listed below, there are two simple ways you can make a difference:

  1. Open your account with one of our Platinum Partner banks, or
  2. Encourage your bank to become a Platinum Partner bank by raising its rates!
