Start your application

Before you start, we recommend gathering the items listed below. If you plan to open a joint account, you’ll also need to gather this information for the second person on the account — and remember, the primary applicant must meet age requirements of 14-25. If you don't have the necessary funding info, you can opt to fund your new account within 30 days of opening.

Form of identification

Grab your driver’s license, passport, military ID, or state-issued ID.

Social Security number

Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents can apply online, so you’ll need to know your Social Security number or have your card handy.

Funding information

You’ll need your debit card, credit card, or online banking credentials for the bank account you’d like to fund from.
