What makes Squad Student Banking different than a regular Trustmark account?

Squad has no minimum balance requirement and no monthly service charge. Which is just a fancy way to say it’s free. You also have to be 24 or younger to use it. Those are the major differences, but to compare Squad Student Banking with our other personal checking accounts.

Do you offer smart financial counseling tools and tips to help me be better at handling money? (Asking for a friend.)

Yes, tell your friend we’ve got tons of great financial advice and tips on our blog.

How do I join the Squad and open an account?

Easy. You can get started online. Then, simply stop by a Trustmark branch to finish the process. You can find the nearest location here. It’ll only take about 15 minutes, and here’s what you need to bring with you: 

  • Driver's license
  • U.S. Social Security
  • $50 (cash or check) to deposit and open your account

How do I download the Squad app?

Just click here to download it from the Apple Store or here from Google Play.

Can I give the app a Squad theme?

You bet. Once you’ve opened your account and downloaded the myTrustmark app, just follow these simple steps:  

Step 1: Login to myTrustmark.

Step 2: Select Settings in the main menu.

Step 3: Select “theme” from the drop-down menu, then select “Squad” and start banking freely.

Can I make as many deposits and withdrawals as I want?

Go for it. You can make unlimited deposits and withdrawals with your Squad account.  As long as you have money in your account, you can use a Trustmark ATM or one of our branches to make a withdrawal.  You’re welcome. 

Do I need my parent or legal guardian on the account?

Some restrictions may apply, but as long as you’re 16, you don’t need a parent or legal guardian on your account.

Let’s say my grandparents give me some money for my birthday. What’s the quickest, easiest way to get it into my account as soon as humanly possible?

A very important question, indeed. You can deposit checks with Mobile Deposit on your Squad mobile banking app, which is the most convenient. Or just stop by any of our branch.

Even more important, how can I withdraw said money?

We make it super easy to get your hands on your cash. You can withdraw money at any of our branch locations or one of our conveniently located ATMs. 

How do I get my debit card?

Glad you asked. You'll get it in the mail soon after opening your account.

How do I make my debit card MY debit card?

You can personalize your first debit card for free, and after that it's only five bucks to personalize one. All you have to do is upload your favorite image or select a design from our gallery, and your new card will arrive in about 5 to 7 business days. Start Personalizing

What if I’m canoeing down a river and one of my friends accidentally turns the canoe over and all my stuff floats down the river never to be seen again ever?

No problem. Just click here and order a new debit card. You should also cancel the card you lost to be on the safe side.

Are there any fees I should know about?

Some miscellaneous service fees may apply, such as fees for non-sufficient funds. You might get charged for using another bank’s ATM, too. The biggest thing to look out for is an overdraft fee for spending money you don’t have. Yikes. Thankfully, we offer free low balance alerts so you can avoid them.

Sweet. How do I sign up for the alerts?

You can switch on low balance alerts in the app and even personalize them.

What happens to my account after I turn 25?

You will receive a letter of notification in the mail prior to your 25th birthday as a reminder that your account will be automatically converted into our Smart Choice Banking account, which is still really cool.
