Procedures for Opening and Maintaining an 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. We have adopted a customer identification program requiring us to: (1) verify the identity of any person seeking to open an account; (2) maintain records of the information used to verify identity; and (3) consult government known or suspected terrorist lists to determine whether the client appears on any such list. 

What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. For an individual we require a copy of an unexpired government-issued identification evidencing nationality or residence and bearing a photograph or similar safeguard, such as a driver’s license or passport. In addition, for a person other than an individual (such as a corporation, partnership or trust), documents showing the existence of the entity; such as certified articles of incorporation, a government-issued business license, a partnership agreement, a death certificate, or trust instrument.
