How to find out when you opened a bank account?
It is often hard to remember the exact date of opening. Actually, there is no real need to. Here are several methods to quickly check it.
- You can find it in your online banking profile in the “account” section.
- If for some reason the option is missing, then you can request bank statements, either online, or hard copies. The statements are available online for at least for one year in most banks. Usually, the statement information is kept for up to five years.
- If your bank account was opened more than 5 years ago, then you will need to contact customer support. You can visit your bank branch or get in touch online. In this case proof of identity (a passport or a driving license) must be provided.
Do you have additional bank accounts under your name?

Savings accounts may have been opened by your parents some time ago. Ask your family if inactive accounts, in your name, still exist. You could also have planned to close an account but, for some reason, did not. It is recommended that you request a copy of all active accounts that are in your name or are associated with you. To be absolutely sure that you are financially safe, check for any unclaimed money in any accounts that you don’t use.
