It should take no more than 5 minutes to open an account. That's it, just a few easy steps and you can start earning some of the best rates around with Citizens Access.

Do you require a minimum opening deposit?

Yes, the minimum deposit required to open an Online Savings or CD account is $5,000.

No branches? How do I access my money?

No branches allows us to deliver you some of the best rates available, but being a digital bank doesn't mean you can't access your funds. Simply link your account to your account(s) at other financial institutions and set up a one-time or recurring electronic transfer (transfer restrictions apply) or, if you prefer, you can also call us and request a check made out to you.

"No fees, for anything."  Really?

That's right!  Unlike most banks, Citizens Access charges zero fees, no account opening or maintenance fees, and no ancillary service fees. No fees for anything.

Do you have a branch location near me?
