Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. Here's what you will need to bring:

  • Personal information such as your name, current address and social security number
  • Two forms of identification — applies to all person(s) who will sign on the account
  • A government-issued ID with a photo — (Ex. driver's license, state ID or passport)
  • A second form of ID — (Ex. Social Security card, insurance card or credit card with your name  and an expiration date that shows it is current)
  • A deposit with which to open the account — either a check or cash

What we need from the kids:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Social Security Card
