Have a few documents ready.
We’re all about protecting your identity, so you’ll need to bring a few items as proof. Have your driver’s license or passport ready, and you’ll need your social security number, too.
Think about how you’ll fund your account.
Now it’s time to put money in your new account! If you’re going through the process online or by phone, have a debit or credit card handy. In branches you can fund your account with a card, cash, check or money order.
Set up your payments and online banking.
Now that your account is created and funded, it’s time to get everything in order. Set up direct deposit from your employer so your paycheck goes straight into your account. Enroll in Online Banking so you can check balances, make transfers, pay your bills and more. Plus, be sure to download the OneAZ Mobile Banking app from the App Store or the Google Play Store so you can bank on the go!
