Interested in opening a bank account?

Here are the documents you'll need.

A government issued ID

This form of identification verifies who you say you are by allowing the bank to match up your face to your name. You can bring your driver’s license or passport as proof of your identity.

Social Security Card

In order to fully prove your identity, you’ll need to prove that you have a valid Social Security number (SSN). Be certain to bring that document along when you are ready to open an account.

Current official document with your name and address

This information can come from a number of documents, but is necessary to proving where you live. A utility bill, credit card statement, lease agreement or mortgage statement will all work to prove residency. If you’ve gone paperless, print a billing statement from your online account.
