Financial service providers such as credit cards, insurance services and mortgage services.

Identity Verification Notice:

On October 26, 2001, the USA Patriot Act was signed into law.  Its purpose is to help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities.  This Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account or has signatory rights to an account.

What this means for you: The credit union will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow the credit union to identify you.  The credit union may ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.

If you are an existing member who joined the credit union before the USA Patriot Act became effective we may also need to verify and retain copies of any documents used to verify your identity when you request a new deposit account, apply for a loan or are added as a signatory to a new or existing  deposit or loan account.

We ask for your understanding as we work to support these efforts to maintain the security of your funds and our country.  Please speak with a credit union staff member if you have any questions or concerns about our identification policies.
