    Hello! I've been appointed to the class of 2017 and was just wondering about the whole banking situation. I read in the appointee handbook that a banking agreement would be sent with my offer of appointment, and then all I would have to do is sign it and mail it back. However, I haven't received anything like that. I'm just trying to get all my paperwork sent in and I don't know why I haven't received anything about opening an account. Is it going to come in the mail eventually or should I try to contact the academy? or should I just not worry about it? I don't think my appointment was conditional or anything.
    I hope this thread doesn't come off as me only worrying about money. Believe me, that is not the case. I just thought opening a USAFA bank account would be simple, and it seems like something I have to do before I-day. I didn't find any past questions on banking either.
    Thanks so much!

    I had the same issue. It seems like they forgot to include the forms in some of the packets.

    Call the banking office at USAFA (the number is listed in the appointee handbook) and ask them to send another packet. They were more than happy to help! :smile:

    you should have some paperwork coming in your second BFE. if not, you'll have information to fill out on i-day to open up your bank account and if all else fails, theres a day during basic in which you sort out your financial affairs if need be. they'll find a way to pay you one way or another.
