    STEPS TO OPEN SAFETY DEPOSIT BOX
    1
    Decide who will have access to your safe deposit box. You may rent a box jointly with a spouse, a child or another family member. You may not simply give an extra key to a person not named in the rental contract. A co-renter may access the box independently of a bank representative. You may also ask the institution to assign a deputy or agent to be granted access in the presence of a bank employee.

    2
    Choose a size of box. Safe deposit boxes are available in several sizes, ranging from 2 inches high by 5 inches wide to 10 by 10. Rental fees vary.

    3
    Complete the rental agreement. You must provide proof of identity of all who will be on the account and have the appropriate fees on hand at the time you sign the agreement. Rental fees may be assessed on a monthly or annual basis.

    1. Contact the bank to see if you need to be a customer of the bank, need to make an appointment and what identification documents you will need to bring with you. You can also ask about the lease length and costs.

    2
    Arrive at the bank with any necessary documents. The bank representative will guide you through filling out the lease agreement and go over the terms, conditions and procedures associated with having control over the safe deposit box.

    3. Sign the lease agreement where you are told to do so and make sure it is in the required color ink. Each bank may differ on its policy on the color of ink required, but most of the time, the bank representative will hand you either a blue or black ink pen. The bank representative will give you the keys and request payment.

    4 Provide payment for your lease term. The bank representative will ask if you have valuables to store at this time. You can then place your documents and valuables in the safe deposit box
