Once you download the Acorns app or sign up through our web app, you’ll need:

  1. A valid email address where we can reach you and regularly send you account information.
  2. Your online banking log-in information to link your accounts to fund your investments and use Round-Ups®. (Please note, you MUST be listed as an owner on the bank account)
  3. Your physical address--this should be your most permanent address since we can't accept a PO Box or business address. (Please note- you will be able to designate a different mailing address if needed)
  4. Your Social Security Number or ITIN.
  5. General Profile Information like your financial goals, occupation, and earnings. This will help us recommend the right portfolio for you.
  6. You must be 18 years old to open an account

After signing up, you may also need to upload a photo of your government-issued ID or other documentation that allows us to verify your identity.

That’s it! Most accounts are approved within 1 business day. If you experience a delay in getting your account approved, please reach out to Support.
