Certificate of Deposit

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. When you open an account we will ask you for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will identify you. We may ask to see your Driver License and other identifying documents.

Please note that in case requested follow-up information required for compliance with regulations pertaining to ‘Customer Identification Program’ and ‘Know Your Customer’ is not forthcoming within 30 days after account opening or otherwise upon request by the branch, any relationship already established, will be terminated.
