USA Patriot Act Notice

Important Information You Need to Know about Opening a New Account

CUSTOMER IDENTIFICATION PROGRAM NOTICE: 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. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents. Federal regulation also requires us to obtain and verify the beneficial owner(s) and control person(s) of legal entity customers. Requiring the disclosure of key individuals who own or control a legal entity helps law enforcement investigate and prosecute crimes. A corporation, partnership, trust or other legal entity may need to provide other information, such as its principal place of business, local office, employer identification number, certified articles of incorporation, government-issued business license, a partnership agreement or trust agreement. Your account may be restricted or closed if we cannot obtain and verify this information.
