If you have only recently moved out of New York, or are registered at a permanent residence elsewhere, we may be able to facilitate an account for you. By registering an account, you will be asked for a Proof of Address document at a point in the registration, so you can submit a document confirming your residential address in the application. Our Customer Success team will review your application and let you know of the outcomes, or reach out for further information if needed.
