Before you begin your application to open a checking account, FSU Credit Union will need the following items to verify your identity:
- Birth Certificate & Social Security Card
- Parent/Guardian as the joint owner
Any minor can open a youth account along with a Joint Owner, usually a parent or guardian. They share responsibility for the account. Their signing is significant because, in Florida, only your parent or guardian can sign the contract until you turn 18. Once the contract is signed, you can work with your parent or guardian to access your savings account.
Our financial representatives at every FSU Credit Union branch will help you through these steps to set up your account. Please feel free to Contact Us for more questions.
