USA Patriot Act

USA Patriot Act:

In accordance with Section 326 of the USA Patriot Act signed October 26, 2001 all persons are subject to the identity verification requirements even though they may be a long term customer of and well known to the Bank.

For the purpose of the regulation, an “account” includes every formal banking relationship that entails ongoing services, dealings, or transactions. Some examples are a deposit account, loan, trust relationship, or safe deposit box rental.

If you request to open an account or become a signatory on an account with the Bank and the Bank has not previously verified your identity under the new regulatory requirements, the Bank may request documentary verification of your identity, such as driver’s license or passport and/or it will verify your identity through other non-documentary methods. We will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. Similar identification requirements apply to business entities such as corporations and partnerships.

In all cases, protection of our customers’ identity and confidentiality is the Bank’s pledge to you.
