Are you eligible for a VA loan?
She explains why she opened her first checking account. "I decided to open a checking account because I had so much money in my purse that I had received for gifts and from chores and favors I did for neighbors. I was worried that it would get misplaced or stolen - like the time I was on a trip home from Yellowstone Park. We stopped at a café and I left my purse in the booth. Fortunately, someone found it and turned it in and nothing was taken from it. Putting my money in a bank account makes it secure and ensures nothing will happen to it. A bank card is easy to use and you don’t have to pull bills out of your purse or worry about counting out the exact amount or what to do with all the loose coins. When I opened up my bank account, I was told everything I needed to know about using it, and I learned how to use the ledger to track my spending."
Today's Tuesday Tip comes from Stephanie Saunders, CSR at our Bozeman Oak bank. Stephanie asks, “Have you ever wondered what you need to bring to the bank when you open a personal deposit account? It may be less than you think!”
For one of our Customer Service Representatives to help you open a personal deposit account, all we need from you is your name, physical address, date of birth, social security number and a valid government issued ID.
