Your account information and identification

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 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.

Attach your identification

We will ask you to attach a copy of your valid identification. Until we receive this supporting documentation, services may be limited to opening and funding selected accounts.

Your account security is important to us

For your protection, our online application is protected with the highest level of security available. During the application process, you will be asked identifying questions that only you should know the answers to. This will help us validate your identity.
