Patriot Act

Patriot Act

Help us prevent identity fraud.

The USA Patriot Act paved the way for financial institutions to help prevent fraud, identity theft, and the spread of terrorism by requiring them to obtain certain information on new accounts.

Important information about procedures for opening a new account

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 (for individuals), and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license (for individuals) or other identifying documents.
