The first step is to fill out this form. If you need to come into a branch to complete the account opening process, we will let you know. Sometimes in the account opening process you’ll need to visit your local branch to fund the account and sign the signature cards.

Here's what you'll need to complete the application:

  • Personal information (name, date of birth, Social Security number, etc.)
  • Email address and phone number
  • U.S. address and owner establishment date (not a P.O. box)
  • Legal name of business and type of business
  • Business establishment date with signer’s full name
  • Tax ID number, ownership structure and number of employees
  • Percent of ownership and annual gross revenue

Additional documentation may be required depending on business ownership structure, etc. Ask a branch associate for details.

Other important information you need to know:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age and must be a legal U.S. resident.
  • All applicants are subject to review of past account handling and verification of the information provided.

Your online access should be available within a few hours after opening an account.
