This type of account is a convenient way of pooling your money and may suit individuals in long term relationships, couples who share financial obligations and savings partners saving toward a mutual financial goal. A joint bank account can also be held in more than just two people’s names.
How to open a joint bank account online?
For existing MyState Bank customers, simply log into your online banking platform to open a new joint bank account. For new customers, it takes just a few minutes to set you up as a MyState Bank customer.
Before opening a new joint account, it’s important that all account holders on your nominated account understand all account terms and conditions, any restrictions on deposits and withdrawals as well as any fees applicable. Account holders all have access to the funds within a joint account, but you can set levels of authority for things like who can make changes to an existing account.
If you are considering a joint Bonus Saver Account, our multi award winning savings option offering customers access to competitive interest earnings, then this can be linked with a transaction account from MyState as long as the Bonus Saver and transaction account are both opened in the same names. Opening a new Glide transaction account can also be done online in less than 5 minutes.
