A joint account in minutes
When it comes to shared saving, spending, and earning, why complicate things? We’ve made opening a joint account as easy as adding a friend. In a click or a tap, you can share money with those you know and trust the most, while giving you free transactions, no minimum balance, 1.70% interest*, and more. All with online sign-up.
Easy as 1, 2, 3
Life’s easier to manage when it’s shared. With no monthly fees, you can pool your resources and pay bills with up to three other people—all from a single account.

With no minimum balance and free bill payments, a Joint Savings Plus Account is the perfect place to pay shared expenses and to save for milestones. Oh, and you’ll earn 1.70% interest* while you’re at it.
Money made simple
A Joint Savings Plus Account gives you free transactions and makes it simple to see when transactions were made, so it’s easy to track all your money moves.

Who should get a joint account?
Joint accounts are designed for people who know each other well. Make sure you trust who you’re inviting, since you will all have full access to the account and the funds that are in it.
How does a joint account work with my individual Savings Plus Account?
As an existing customer, once you open a joint account, your individual Savings Plus Account stays as is. So your personal banking remains just that—personal—and your joint account is shared.
You’ll be able to transfer funds easily between your individual and joint accounts as many times as you like, at no charge.
Can I convert my individual account into a joint account?
If you’re already a customer, we recommend keeping your existing individual Savings Plus Account and opening a new joint account.
If you do wish to convert your existing individual account into a joint account, you can do so by signing in through a browser, selecting the account you wish to convert, choosing “More options” in the top right corner, and then following the easy steps to add co-holder(s). Your account will automatically convert to a joint account once a co-holder has accepted your invitation.
What if the unexpected happens to a co-holder?
Should something happen to a joint account co-holder, please call the EQ Bank Customer Care team at 1-844-437-2265 (844-4EQ-BANK). We’ll do everything we can to help.
