Important Notice About Procedures for Opening an Account

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 all business entities and each person who is an authorized signer on an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.

Contact your Business Relationship Officer, local Branch Manager, or call (800) 293-6494, option 1.
