Important information about opening an account

The USA Patriot Act requires credit unions to take extra security precautions 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 opens an account.

When you open a People's Trust account, you will be required to provide your name, physical address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may ask to see your driver's license or other identifying government issued documents. Please know that we are required to verify the information that you provided in your application with consumer reporting agencies such as Transunion and/or ChexSystems.

Thank you for your understanding and help in this critical effort. The war on terrorism will be fought on many fronts, and this is one of them.
