Important information about procedures on 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. The USA PATRIOT Act requires all private banking institutions to collect, verify, and record information that positively identifies individuals that open accounts.
To comply with this requirement, please have the following items ready:
- Drivers License or State ID
- Date of Birth
- Social Security Number (SSN) or Tax Identification Number (TIN)
- Your complete residence and mailing address
