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 opening an account.

Prior to opening an account, we generally must obtain your name, address, date of birth, taxpayer identification number or other identifying number (e.g., Social Security number or employer identification number) and other information that will allow us to identify you and to better understand you and/or your business. We also may ask to see documentation verifying your identity, such as an unexpired driver’s license or passport or, in the case of a business, a certified copy of articles of incorporation and/or a government-issued business license, authorized signers, account owners, and your officers, directors, beneficial owners, controlling shareholders and others.
