Online Account Opening

There are several things you will need to refer to – and provide - during the account opening process:

  • You’ll be asked for your U.S. Social Security number and valid form of identification including: Driver's license, State ID, Military ID or Passport
  • You will also need to provide personal information, including your date of birth and former mailing address(es).

Savers Bank uses encryption for online security. Encryption technology helps provide secure transmission of information along the Internet by encoding the transmitted data using a mathematical formula to scramble the data. Without a corresponding "decoder," the transmission would look like nonsense text and would be unusable.

Encryption technology can be used for a host of applications, including electronic commerce (sending credit card numbers for orders or transmitting account information), e-mail messages and sensitive documents.

Encryption is utilized with the transmission of data from one party to another. The sender encodes the data by scrambling it and then sends it on. The receiver must decode the data with the correct "decoder" in order to read and use it. The effectiveness (or level of security) for encryption is measured in terms of how long the key is - the longer the key, the longer it would take for someone without the correct "decoder" to break the code. The length of the key is measured in bits (e.g., 40-bit encryption, the level of encryption used with many ordinary browsers, versus 128-bit encryption, the level of encryption required to use this application).

You’ll need the same information that’s required when opening an individual account—but you’ll need it for both applicants. For details, select “What do I need to open an account with Savers Bank?” above.

ACH transfers from your existing account at another financial institution to your new account will occur on the third business day. If you currently are a Savers Bank customer your initial deposit may take up to three business days to be completed after the opening date of the account.

You have the option to edit your account information prior to submitting the information to Savers Bank. Simply click on the "Edit" button above the grouping of information you would like to change, and you will be permitted to change your input
