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 account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and identification number. The identification for a U.S. citizen would be a taxpayer identification number. For a non- U.S. citizen the identification number would include the taxpayer identification number, passport number, and country of issuance, alien identification number, or government-issued identification showing nationality, residence, and a photograph of you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.
A corporation, partnership, trust or other legal entity may need to provide other information, such as its principal place of business, local office, employer identification number, certified articles of incorporation, government-issued business license, a partnership agreement or a trust agreement.
