Important Information about opening an account

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you.

In order to make the application process as easy as possible, please have the following information available for yourself and any joint applicants:

  • Valid Social Security Number
  • Date of Birth
  • Your current address
  • Valid identification information (including number, issue, and expiration date)
  • Telephone number
  • Email address

If you are not a U.S. citizen or are subject to backup withholding, you will not be able to apply online. Please call us at (402) 571-8444 or (402) 339-6755 or visit a Heartland Area Federal Credit Union branch to apply. Branch locations and hours can be found on our contact page.

If you would like to add beneficiaries to your account(s), please also have the following information available regarding your beneficiaries:

  • Valid Social Security Number
  • Date of Birth
  • Address

Applying is Fast and Easy

Here’s what you’ll need to have handy:
