To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each individual and entity that opens an account.
What this means for you:
When opening an account, we may ask you to provide your name, address, Social Security number or other Taxpayer Identification Number ("TIN"), and other information that will help us to verify your identity. You may also be asked to provide a driver’s license, state ID card or other identifying documents.
