Important Information About Procedures For Opening A New Account. Effective October 1, 2003, there are new requirements for anyone opening an account at a financial institution in the United States.

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 for 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.

This required verification may be inconvenient for some, but it is a strong deterrent for terrorists and other criminals. We thank you for your understanding and for joining us in securing a safer tomorrow. If you have any questions regarding these requirements please give us a call at 712- 262-3340 or send an email to us.
