IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT NEW PROCEDURES FOR OPENING AN ACCOUNT
Mandated by the USA Patriot Act
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, the USA PATRIOT Act, a Federal Law, requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account, including business accounts.
What this means for you:
When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to verify identifying documents. If you are opening an account on behalf of a business entity, documents relating to the business may also be requested.
