Important Information about Procedures for Opening a New 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 each person who opens an account.

We may then verify the information that you provided in your application with a consumer reporting agencies such as Equifax and/or ChexSystems.
