Personal Finance

Banking Just Got Easier

CorTrust Bank makes it simple and convenient to manage your finances, and now you can save time by opening a personal savings or checking account online! Whether you want to avoid monthly fees or take advantage of premium rewards*, our accounts offer the flexibility to do more with your money.

Here’s how you can open an account from the comfort of your home:

Step 1: Choose Your Application

To make sure you receive tailored service we created individual applications for South Dakota and Minnesota residents. South Dakota residents can begin the process here, and Minnesota residents can begin the process here.

Already a CorTrust personal banking customer? You can open another checking and/or savings account through the Online Banking portal, which automatically populates your information for even more time savings!

Step 2: Provide Information

When you begin your application, make sure you have your social security number, valid ID, and current address ready to make the process smooth. Once you’ve entered the required information we’ll ask some security questions to verify your identity and securely open your account.

Step 3: Choose Your Account(s)

Next it’s time to choose the savings or checking account you want to open. Not sure what type of account to pick? We have three personal checking account options and three savings accounts. Simply choose the one that works best for your needs!

Step 4: Fund Your Account(s)

Now that you’ve decided on an account it’s time to make the first deposit! Either transfer money from another bank to your new CorTrust Bank account online, or bring a deposit to your local branch.

Please note the following minimum opening deposit amounts - Personal and Preferred Checking, and CorSavings Savings Accounts: $100; Premium Checking Account: $2,500

Step 5: Submit Your Application!

Before you hit submit you’ll get the chance to review and edit your information to make sure everything is correct. After you have verified and submitted your application our team will reach out once the application has been processed.

Remember, if you chose to fund your account in person the account must be funded within 14 days or it will be closed.
