FINANCES: What Do You Need To Open An Account?

To open an account, a person needs some form of ID:  a driver's license, a passport, or a letter from a school. 

A person must be 18 years of age, unless going to college or has authority to do so at an earlier age.  If someone is underage, they will need a guardian to share the account. 

Remember that most banks have checking and savings accounts for young adults, so make sure to ask your bank!
