Open an Account
If you meet one of the eligibility requirements, you can become a member of Ascend. To become a member, you must purchase at least one share by depositing $5 into a Share (savings) account. This is not a membership fee – you get it back if you ever decide to close your account. But as long as you keep the $5 in your Share account, you remain a member of Ascend. And remember, once you join, members of your immediate family are eligible to join.
To open your account, print and complete the Account Application Card. You may bring the card to your nearest Ascend financial center, or you can mail it with your opening deposit. However, the card must be notarized unless it’s signed and witnessed by an Ascend representative.
Important Notice: To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.
