In accordance with Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act signed October 26, 2001 all persons are subject to the identity verification requirements even though they may be a long term customer of and well known to the Bank.
For the purpose of the regulation, an "account" includes every formal banking relationship that entails ongoing services, dealings or transactions. Some examples are a deposit account, loan; trust relationship or safe deposit box rental.
If you request to open an account or become a signatory on an account with the Bank and the Bank has not previously verified your identity under regulatory requirements, the Bank will obtain specific information about you and may request documentary verification of your identity, such as driver’s license or passport and/or it may verify your identity through other non-documentary methods. Similar identification requirements apply to business entities such as corporations and partnerships.
In all cases protection of our customers identity and confidentiality is the Bank's pledge to you.
