ID requirements

Greater Iowa Credit Union is federally mandated to require proper forms of identification to open an account. For your convenience, we’ve provided a list of acceptable primary and secondary identifications. In some cases, a member will be required to present a social security card.

In addition to identification, a $5 deposit is required to open an account. This is considered your “share” in the credit union, and is kept in your savings account.

One of following is required. The ID must be valid, CANNOT be expired and must have a picture of the individual:

  • State issued driver’s license, or
  • State issued ID card, or

  • Passport, or
  • Government-issued national identification card containing evidence
  • of nationality or permanent residence, (e.g. Cedula card or Matricula
  • card), or
