Patriot Act, Section 326 of the US Patriot
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 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 each person for their name,
physical address, mailing address, date of birth, and other information
that will allow us to identify them. We will ask to see, copy,
and or record each person’s driver’s license and any
other form of identification presented.
