In addition to personal savings and checking accounts, the Regions Bank "Open an account" page provides an option to apply online for a certificate of deposit account. The setup process, however, can not be completed through the website, and applicants must wait until they receive a response from the bank advising them whether their online application has been approved. A large investment Regions Bank Platinum money market account, which requires a minimum of $15,000 to open, must be opened at a branch office, as stated on the bank's website.
Opening a Regions Bank personal checking or savings account online requires the applicant to provide the following personal information: Social Security number, date of birth, email address and the identification number and expiration date from a driver's license or state-issued ID. The new account also requires initial funding from a credit or debit card, an existing Regions Bank account or an account owned by the applicant at another bank.Learn more about Bank Accounts
