USA Patriot Act
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING OR CHANGING YOUR ACCOUNT:
The USA Patriot Act requires credit unions to take extra security precautions 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.
These new procedures are designed to prevent crimes such as identity theft and account fraud that terrorists commit to finance their operations against the U.S. and its citizens.
The required verification may be inconvenient for some, but it is a strong deterrent for terrorists and other criminals. Your understanding and cooperation is appreciated.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU:
When you open or change an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that allows us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.
