Customer Identification Program Notice
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
This notice answers some questions about our Customer Identification Program
What type of information will I need to provide?
When you open an account, we are required to collect information such as the following from you:
- Your name
- Date of birth
- Identification number:
- U.S. Citizen: taxpayer identification number (social security number or employer identification number)
- Non-U.S. Citizen: taxpayer identification number, passport number, and country of issuance, alien identification card number, or government-issued identification showing nationality, residence, and a photograph of you.
You may also show your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
- A corporation, partnership, trust or other legal entity may need to provide other information, such as its principal place of business, local office, employer identification number, certified articles of incorporation, government-issued business license, a partnership agreement, or a trust agreement.
- U.S. Department of the Treasury, Securities Exchange Commission, NASD, and New York Stock Exchange rules already require you to provide most of this information. These rules also may require you to provide additional information, such as your net worth, annual income, occupation, employment information, investment experience and objectives.
