Patriot Act

Important Information about procedures for opening a new account in regards to the USA Patriot Act 2001

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.

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 will also ask to see your drivers license or other identifying documents. While we can begin most new membership applications over the phone or email, we require your presence to sign new member agreements. It not only helps us comply with the Patriot Act, it helps us protect your identity.
