Important information about procedures for opening a new account with us:
To help the US 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.
What this means for you is this - when you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to properly identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents, per the USA Patriot Act.
