Important Information about Procedures for Opening a New Account
Section 326 of the Patriot Act is aimed at protecting Americans from terrorist activity, and it involves banking.
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.
Here’s what this means to you: When you open an account, we will ask you for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
