Adding Spouse to an Account

I just got married. Can I add my husband to my checking account?

Whether you can actually add your husband to your existing account or not is a matter of bank policy. Some banks use an alternate method. They would have the two of you set up a new account with a new number, then they would work with you to close your old individual account, making arrangements to re-route any direct deposits and auto debits you might have.
