IMG_3946

Opening a new account can be pretty scary, so many questions. Every financial institution is different, but most have the same requirements. One thing people may not understand is having a checking account is serious business. You can not neglect your account, and think you will be able to go to another financial institution to open another. We have what is called Cheque Systems, in the Financial Industry. That allows us to see if you owe any other banks, or have charge off accounts. Being financially sound will help you go a long way.

Listed below are a few requirements for local financial institutions:

*Valid state ID, Drivers License, or Passport
*Opening deposit amount
*Utility bill to verify address
*Mobile device, to enroll in online banking
*Employer information to set up Direct Deposit
*Remember to ask questions!
