Having relocated to Chicago, I had to open a new bank account for my payroll purposes. So I visited a Chase banking center in my vicinity today. Unlike India where opening an account involves tonnage of papers like ID proof, Address Proof, Photo etc, I just needed to show my social security card and passport. The account got opened.

The banker also helped us back to our home by booking a Lyft Taxi which offered a $25 free ride.
