What you'll need to open a Clear Access Banking℠ account

Must be 18 years or older to open this account online.

Teens 13 – 17 must open at a branch:

Account owner

  • Anyone 17 and older can open as a primary owner
  • Minors 13 – 16 must have an adult co-owner

Two forms of identification (ID) are needed to open at a branch

Each primary account owner and co-owner needs two IDs:

One Primary ID

Original versions of:

  • State-issued or U.S territory driver's license
  • State-issued or U.S territory ID card
  • Passport
  • U.S. Armed Forces ID
  • Permanent resident card
  • Employment authorization card
  • Tribal Identification issued by a federally recognized U.S. tribal government

Non-U.S. citizens without a U.S. issued taxpayer identification number must provide a government issued ID that provides evidence of nationality or residence.

Plus a secondary ID

Original versions of:

  • Employee ID
  • Student ID
  • Credit card
  • ID issued by a recognized business or government agency

Proof of address is required – If neither primary nor secondary ID contains your physical address, separate proof of address (for example a utility bill or school enrollment statement) will need to be provided.

Teens without a primary ID need to be accompanied by an adult co-owner who is a relative or guardian, and bring identification such as a Social Security card, birth certificate, or student ID.
