USA PATRIOT Act

Customer Identification Requirements

In accordance with Section 326 of the USA Patriot Act, applicants for new accounts are requested to provide some form of verifiable evidence as to their identity including name, address, and other identifying information.

This requirement is to help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities. Although Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account, the protection of our customers’ identity information is paramount.

We proudly support all efforts to protect and maintain the security of our customers and our country.
