Patriot Act

Section 326 of the USA Patriot Act requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify & record information that identifies each person who opens an account or changes an existing account. This federal requirement applies to all customers. This information is used to assist the United States government in the fight against the funding of terrorism and money-laundering activities.

What this means to you — when you open an account or change an existing account, we will ask each person for their name, physical address, mailing address, date of birth & other information that will allow us to identify that person. We will ask to see each person’s driver’s license/identification card and other identifying documents to copy and/or record information from each of them.
