Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Account
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, U.S. Federal
law requires financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each
person (individuals and businesses) who opens an account. 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. We may also ask for your driver's license or other identifying documents.
