USA PATRIOT Act — Important Information About Opening a New Account

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, U.S. 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, tax identification 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. Generally, we require documents submitted in support of an application for membership to be legible and presented in English. Identifying documents presented in a language other than English must be legible and accompanied by a certified English translation obtained by the applicant. The certification from the translator must indicate that the translation is complete, accurate and attest to his/her competence as a translator. We will not be able to accept notarized copies of self-translated documents.
