USA Patriot Act

The USA Patriot Act (Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act) was written shortly after September 11, 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 applying to do business with them.

Customer Identification Requirements

In accordance with Section 326 of the USA Patriot Act, applicants for new accounts are requested to provide current picture identification that verifies identity including  name, address, and other identifying information.  In some cases, identification will be requested for current account holders if original documentation was not obtained with the opening of the account.  In all cases, protection of our members' identity and confidentiality is our pledge to you.

We proudly support all efforts to protect and maintain the security of our members and our country.
