Each account must have at least two authorized signatures. In addition to the troop leader, one signer must be the Service Unit Money Manager or Service Unit Manager.

Customers will be asked for their name, address, date of birth, social security number, and other information that will allow the bank to identify them. A driver's license or other identifying documents may also be required.
