This Month’s Features
On September 2, 1969, the first ATM opens for business at the Chemical Bank in Rockville Center, New York. When America’s first automatic teller machine made its debut, it was only able to give out cash. By 1971, improvements were made and the ATM was then able to handle multiple functions such as providing account balances.
