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. An account includes: Investments, Safe Deposit, Loans and Deposit Accounts.
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 will also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents. In some cases, identification will be requested for those banking with The First prior to October 1, 2003 because original documentation was not obtained with the opening of the account. In all cases, protection of our customer's identity and confidentiality is the Bank's pledge to you.
The identity information is not being obtained for credit decision purposes.
