USA Patriot Act
Important Information about procedures for opening a new account
As required by Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act
Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. This mandated “Customer Information Program” is part of the USA PATRIOT Act, which was signed into law by President Bush in October 2001.
What this means for customers of Stoughton Co-Operative Bank:
- When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and US tax identification number.
- We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents to verify your identity.
We thank our customers for their support in this effort.
