Simply Free Checking

Start your application

We recommend gathering the items listed below before you start. If you plan to open a joint account, you’ll need all of the same information for the other person on the account. And don’t forget, a $50 minimum opening balance is required.

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.
