Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Account
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. Therefore, we may ask for certain information.
What This Means to You:
When you open a new account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. In addition, we may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents. For additional information, you may visit the NCUA Consumer Assistance Center.
