USA Patriot Act Information – Customer Notice

Important Information About Procedures For Opening or Changing An Account

Section 326 of the USA Patriot Act

This act requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account or changes an existing account. This federal requirement applies to all new customers and current 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 for your name, address, date of birth, tax identification number and other information that will allow us to identify you. We will also ask to see your driver’s license and/or other government issued identifying documents.


By applying for an account, you give the Bank your consent to obtain credit information, check references with other financial institutions and use any commercially available database to verify your identity.
