USA PATRIOT ACT NOTICE
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 opening 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.
2. Switch over your automatic transactions
. Contact the companies and financial institutions that handle your automatic deposits and withdrawals.
Send the Direct Deposit Form
to your employer's human resources department, the company handling your retirement or pension payments, and the Social Security Administration. Send the ACH Payment Form
to anyone making automatic withdrawals from your account, like a mortgage or insurance company. We'll be happy to assist you with either of these forms.
3. Close your old account
. Leave your old account active long enough to allow outstanding checks and automatic withdrawals to clear. Leave enough money in place to cover these transactions. When you're sure the account is inactive, send the Closed Account Form
to your old financial institution requesting any balance from that account. Then you can destroy your old checks, ATM/debit cards, and deposit slips.
