IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT OPENING A NEW ACCOUNTTo 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 request to open an account, we will ask for your full name including middle name, your physical address, date of birth, social security number or tax identification number, or other information that will allow us to identify you. We will require a photo identification issued by a government agency, which would typically be your driver’s license, or state issued identification card.
Patriot Equity Credit Union will also obtain a credit report prior to opening an account for you. Based on your credit rating, Patriot Equity Credit Union may not offer you all of our services and products or may deny your account request. If you do not wish for Patriot Equity Credit Union to obtain a credit rating, we will not be able to open an account for you.
We appreciate your understanding as we work to support these efforts to maintain the security of your funds and our country.
