IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT

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 for your driver's license or other identifying documents.

*Joint Ownership allows all owners to perform deposits, withdraws, transfers and the ability to close products (however, only the Primary can close the account in full). Each owner will have full and equal authority to access all funds, regardless of where the funds originated. No owner can remove another owner from the account, they can only remove themselves. The account includes right of survivorship, meaning if one owner passes away, the funds are split among the remaining account owners, regardless of what the deceased owner's Will states. This account also includes rights of setoff, which means funds in this account can be used towards any and all obligations, liability or debt owed by any owner on the account, regardless of where the funds originated from. Please see the following article for more information Joint Ownership vs. Power of Attorney.
