Hey, if you are under age 18, this account must be opened in branch and requires a parent or guardian as a joint account owner. No worries - we'll help you open your account!

All you need to open:

  1. U.S. Social Security Number + a valid form of identification: i.e. Drivers license, Passport, etc.

  2. A funding source: i.e. Credit/Debit card or U.S. Checking/Savings Account

  3. Parent or guardian as a joint owner if under age 18
  4. A few minutes of your time


Opening a checking account is simple! You can either visit your local Newtown Savings Bank branch or open an account online.
If you are a current customer, all you need is a driver's license or state ID and your social security number. For new customers, you will need to bring two forms of ID, a valid primary ID (driver's license, passport, or state ID) and a secondary (non-picture) ID as well as your social security number. For minors under 18, if they do not have a primary ID we will accept two secondary IDs.
Checking accounts require a $25 minimum deposit to open. Some accounts also have a monthly maintenance fee. You can compare checking accounts to learn more about checking account types, features and maintenance fees. 
All deposits can be completed in branch, at a Newtown Savings Bank ATM, or after hours using the night drop. Checks can be deposited using mobile deposit through the NSB app (limits may apply). You can also set up direct deposit with most employers allowing for a faster process while eliminating the use of paper checks. 
If this is your first time doing a mobile deposit, the first step is to enroll. Once approved, select 'Deposit' from your dashboard. Enter the amount, select the account (if enrolled with more than one account), the app will require access to your camera in order to take a picture of the front and back of your check. Tap 'Continue' and you are all set!
