Important Information about Opening an Account
To help the government fight the funding of terrorist and money-laundering activities, the U.S. Patriot Act requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address of physical residence, date of birth, taxpayer identification number and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.
