The Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act requires financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record the information that identifies any person who opens an account. The U.S. government created this law as a measure to fight terrorism and money laundering.

When you request to open an account:

  • You will be asked to provide your name, residential or physical address, date of birth, Social Security number and any other information that allows us to accurately identify you.
  • You will also be asked to show your driver’s license or other photo I.D. that is current and issued by the government.

When you request to open an account, you give the Bank your consent to obtain credit information, verify references with other financial institutions and use any commercial database to verify your identity.
