Oct 21, 2021 | Core Bank, Personal

So, you’ve done your homework and are ready to open your new account. You no longer need to hop in your car and drive to a banking center to get the ball rolling – at Core Bank, you can open an account from anywhere. Yep – anywhere. With this simple guide your account will be up and running in no time


What you need to get started


To make things easy, we suggest gathering the needed information listed below before you start this process. If you’re creating a joint account, make sure the other person (or joint owner) has the same information ready. In addition to gathering the required information, keep in mind the minimum opening balance required for the type of account you’re opening.


  • Form of ID– Current driver’s license, passport, military ID, or state-issued IDs are all valid for this purpose.


  • Social Security number– If you already know your number, great! If not, make sure to have your card with you when you apply.


  • Funding source information– banking information will be needed to fund your new account.


Now that you have all that information needed, it’s time to open your account!


1. Opening your account

Click here to get started opening your new account. You will be asked if you’re already a Core Bank customer, a new customer, or already started an application. Next, you will need to choose how you would like to sign in, with either your username or deposit account. Lastly, you will choose your account type, answer a series of follow-up questions, agree to the terms and conditions, and fund your account.


2. Funding your new account

To open and fund your account, make the minimum opening deposit or greater. This deposit can be made through an automatic debit from another bank account.


 3. Verifying your information

Once you submit your application, your information will be verified through a microdeposit process. Once you verify deposit amounts, your account will be open and funded.


Now what?

After successfully completing the account opening process, you will see your new account number. With the new account number handy, this is a great time to register for our safe and convenient online and mobile banking.
