Heads up: To help keep your Acorns accounts safe, we may ask you to verify ownership of both the current and the new primary checking accounts. You must be listed as an owner or as a joint owner on any account you list as the linked primary checking account. If your account requires additional verification, Acorns will send you an email requesting the documents and how to send them to us.
