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 that 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 ask to get a copy of your passport, resident ID or other identifying documents.
