Opening a Checking or Savings Account

A checking or savings account is a great way to start saving money. Many jobs provide direct deposit where your paycheck is automatically deposited into your account on payday. To open a checking or savings account, you will need:

  • Picture ID
    • Driver’s License
    • Non-Driver State ID
  • Proof of Address
  • Birth Certificate
  • Social Security Card

A savings account will allow you to earn interest on the money you’ve saved. You may also request a debit card for either a checking or savings account. It will work like a credit card as long as you have money in your account.
