When opening a bank account, we suggest that you look for an account with no monthly maintenance fees, no minimum balance requirements and conveniently located ATMs or local branches.
We also recommend that the financial institution you choose is either FDIC insured (for banks) or NCUA insured (for credit unions). When you go to open a bank account (or open it online) be sure to bring your social security card or individual tax identification card.
Once you have set up online banking, you can link your bank account to the
Hope Fund Savers Program. If you need assistance with this process, please contact the support desk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
