First and foremost, you will need to bring a form of photo identification, like your driver’s license. You may have to bring a secondary form of ID, like your birth certificate, as well. The bank will need to confirm your identity and date of birth.
Then, you will be required to deposit your opening balance. Some banks may set a minimum for how much you need. Finally, the bank will want your physical address and Social Security Number or Taxpayer Identification Number to finish setting up your account.
