Verifying Your Identity: The USA Patriot Act
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 the account.
What this means to you:
- When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, social security 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.
- We may then verify the information that you provided in your application with consumer reporting agencies such as Equifax, TransUnion and/or ChexSystems.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
