Why do I have to upload my identification and answer other questions about employment, etc.?

We understand that many Americans interested in Old Glory Bank have concerns about privacy and security. That is precisely why Old Glory Bank exists! As an FDIC-insured bank, we are committed and obligated to follow the legal and regulatory requirements which are put in place to protect you, the customer, and your financial interests.

Verifying your identity is the first and most critical step we must take before opening a bank account in your name. The information we request during your account is a necessary part of protecting you from identity theft and fraud. This step also helps protect Old Glory Bank and our country against financial crimes and corruption, including money laundering and terrorism. Just as you would be asked to show your driver's license if you were opening an account at a local brick-and-mortar bank, we ask that you provide us with proof of your identity. We employ advanced technology to validate each of our customers. Each and every technology partner and employee of Old Glory Bank is carefully and thoroughly screened, so that we may offer you the highest level of protection possible.

Because we are a real bank, we are required to know our customers and collect a higher level of information than other financial websites or card companies. Some of the documents we may collect to authenticate your identity and location include:

  • A valid state-issued driver’s license
  • A US passport
  • Social security number/card
  • A valid US military ID
  • Employment verification
  • Utility bills in your name
  • Bank statements
  • Other federal or state-issued supporting documents

At Old Glory Bank, we value your security and privacy as much as you do, so you may rest assured that the information you provide during your account opening is stored safely in our systems.
