Just follow a few simple steps to get started.
Open a new account for each savings goal
Nickname the accounts to label your savings

Manage all your Ally Bank accounts in one place with online banking
It's a card you sign when you open an account at any bank, including Ally. It identifies you as the owner of the account and allows your bank to conduct everyday banking business for you. Federal law requires banks to verify the identity of anyone who opens an account and to keep that information on file. A signature card helps fulfill these requirements, so we keep one signature card on file for each customer.
If for any reason we don't have a signature card for you, we're required by federal law to withhold taxes on the interest earned on each of your accounts. You have 60 days to sign your card before we start withholding taxes (backup withholding), and we cannot stop withholding until we have a card on file for you. We want to help, so we send out regular reminders letting you know your 60 days are almost up and that we don't have a card on file for you.
