By submitting this application, you request that Citi establish a Citi® Secured Mastercard® account (the "Card Account") to you. You agree that all information provided in this application must be verifiable and accurate.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT - To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. This means that we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you when you open an account. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents; and obtain identification information about you or any authorized user you add to your account.
You authorize us to get credit reports and other information about you from consumer reporting agencies and other sources, for such purposes as: determining whether to issue you a Card Account, administering, reviewing and renewing the Card Account, credit line increases or decreases, collection and other servicing of the Card Account, and offering other products and services and for any other uses permitted by law. If you ask us, we'll tell you whether or not we requested a credit bureau report and the names and addresses of any credit bureaus that provided us with such reports. From time to time, we may report negative information about your Card Account behavior, like delinquencies, to consumer reporting agencies. Upon submission of this application, a bureau inquiry will show up on your credit report, which may impact your credit score.
To receive a Card Account, you must meet our applicable criteria bearing on creditworthiness.
Your credit limit will be determined based on the following:
You must not have any bankruptcy history within the last two years.
To receive a Card Account, we will open a Collateral Holding Account on your behalf which DOES NOT PAY INTEREST.
We'll inform you of your credit limit when you receive your credit card. Some limits may be as low as $200. Please note that cash advances may be limited to a portion of your credit limit.
If you are approved for a Card Account, you'll receive a Card Agreement before you can use your Card Account. The terms of the Card Agreement will take effect once you use your Card Account. Even if you do not use your Card Account, the Card Agreement will take effect if you do not cancel your Card Account within 30 days after we send you the Card Agreement. We have the right to make changes to the terms of your Card Account (including rates and fees) in accordance with the Card Agreement.
Notice to Ohio Residents: The Ohio laws against discrimination require that all creditors make credit equally available to all creditworthy customers, and that credit reporting agencies maintain separate credit histories on each individual upon request. The Ohio Civil Rights Commission administers compliance with this law.
Notice to Wisconsin Residents: No marital property agreement, unilateral statement, or court decree adversely affects our rights, unless you give us a copy of such agreement, statement or court order before we grant you credit, or we have actual knowledge of its terms before your account is opened.
Before adding an authorized user to your Card Account you should know:
If we ask for information about the authorized user, you must obtain their permission to share their information with us and for us to share it as allowed by applicable law.
