IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING 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 person who opens an account.
What this means to 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.
PROTECT YOUR CREDIT!
Always be aware of your credit! Free credit reports are the best defense of all!
When it comes to guarding against identity theft and account hijacking, perhaps the most important tool at your disposal is your credit report. It details all of your credit transaction accounts, and will be the first place that unusual charges or enitrely new accounts will appear.
The good news is: you can monitor your credit report for FREE! But you must exercise this option.
Since you are entitled to a free report from each of the three major credit reporting agencies, experts advise you to get a free report from each one every four mojnths. That way, you can keep an eye on your personal account safety year round.
