Capital One has lots of extra functionality that some other smaller banks do not, such as mobile check deposit and the ability to easily open and link other Capital One deposit accounts.

Here’s what you’ll need handy when opening a Capital One 360 Performance Savings Account:

  • Social Security Number (for tax purposes only, it won’t impact your credit score)

  • Bank Account login for transferring funds

It only takes 3 minutes and you can do it right on your phone. Questions include:

  • Contact Info (Name, Home address, Email address, Mobile phone)

  • Date of Birth

  • Citizenship (simply choose the country)

 Plus a few things they need to ask to get to know their customers:
  • Employment Status & Job Title

  • Annual Income (select an estimated range)

 All Boost partners offer FDIC insurance up to the maximum allowed by federal law.

Product terms and the application experience are based on the Capital One website as of April 12, 2024 and may have changed. Be sure to verify all terms and conditions with Capital One prior to applying.
