What business documents do I need to open an account?

Novo requires that all applicants have a copy of their signed personal identification, a mobile phone using one of the major US carriers, a Social Security number, and a U.S. address to complete the application. All applicants must be at least 18 years old. Depending on your business type, we may require additional information for you to apply.

Is my money FDIC insured with Novo?

Yes, your money is FDIC insured with Novo through Middlesex Federal Savings up to $250,000 per depositor.

Do you check my credit history when I apply for a Novo account?

Novo will not check your credit history when you apply for a Novo account. Also, having an account with Novo will not affect your credit score.

Customer Support

The Novo customer support team can be contacted by email, phone, or the Novo app. We were unable to interact with Novo’s telephone support team because the phone number is not listed on their website; you can only find it on a Novo debit card (if you have one). Otherwise, email or the Novo app are the only ways to reach someone in customer support.

In Conclusion

For a small business that wants a free business checking account and keeps a balance of under $250,000, Nova is a suitable choice. However, a customer support number is not listed on the website, and support reviews from Novo customers are mixed.
