As of 2015, checking accounts available at Santander Bank include the Basic Checking, Simply Right SM Checking, Santander Premier Plus Checking and Student Value Checking, notes Santander. The Student Value Checking is good for teenagers and young adults between 16 and 25 years old. There is no minimum balance and no monthly fee with the account.

After viewing the different types of checking accounts available, either click Learn More to get more details about the account, or click Open Now to go directly to the application, says Santander. For example, clicking on the Basic Checking account gives information about the monthly fee, which features it includes, and the requirements for opening the account. Click Open Now if this is the account you want to open. A new window pops open with the bank account application.

The bank account application asks personal information, including a Social Security number, email address, credit or debit card to add money to the account, and a government-issued identification, according to Santander.
