USA Patriot Act

New account opening procedures mandated by the USA Patriot Act.


To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, the USA PATRIOT Act, a Federal law, requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person and each legal entity that opens an account.

What this means for you: When you or your firm open an account, we will ask for some basic information that will allow us to identify you. If you are opening an account on behalf of a business entity, documents relating to its formation, existence and authority may also be requested.

If you have any questions, please contact our Customer Service at (270) 236-2525.
