Do i need to have a checking account before i ship to basic training? my brother joined the marines 4 years ago, and he was able to set up a checking account with the marine corps. Does the Army offer the same thing? or should i try to get one before i ship?

You'll need to open a bank account prior to shipping. Your recruiter should have that information for you.

It's not the Marine Corps offers and the Army doesn't. Department of Defense does not issues paper checks to Soldiers anymore, unless under extreme cases.

You should have a bank account before you ship with the bank of your choice. Otherwise, they will make you sign up with a bank at your Training Base during in-processing. You may or may not like that bank.

Also, if you set up an account before you go, you will already have for debit card etc.

Hicks, if your inexperienced with bank accounts I suggest you go to USAA.com and sign up for a checking account with them, they are Military and Newbie friendly.

You will need a checking account before you ship to basic training, however this will all be taking care of by your recruiter or the recruiting office Futuer soldier team leader... in some office they have deals with local banks were you are able to get a checking account for free without having any money in the bank.
