Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Account
To help fight terrorism funding and money laundering activities, financial institutions are required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each individual or entity that opens an account or requests credit.
Individuals: When an individual opens an account or requests credit, we will ask for their name, residence address, date of birth, tax identification number and other information that allows us to identify them. We may also ask to see a driver's license, passport or other identifying documents.
Legal Entities: When a corporation, partnership, trust or other legal entity opens an account or requests credit, we will ask for the entity's name, physical address, tax identification number and other information that will allow us to identify the entity. We may also ask to see other identifying documents, such as certified articles of incorporation, partnership agreements or a trust instrument.
