IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT APPLYING FOR AN 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 customer who opens an account.

What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask you for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to verify your identity. We will also ask to see a copy of your driver's license or other primary or secondary forms of identification from the list below.

• Please fill out your form carefully. Incomplete applications will delay processing and may be returned.
