  • Member Application and Ownership Information

    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 on personal accounts identifies each person who opens an account. In addition on legal entity accounts, we will require identification on beneficial owners and controlling person. 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.
