USA Patriot Act Compliance Disclosure

On October 26, 2001, President Bush signed into law the USA Patriots Act. This act was established to protect you, your family, and our Country from terrorism by preventing financing to terrorist organizations. One section of that act (Section 326) requires Pillar Credit Union to verify the identity of all new members.

The Credit Union must also verify the identity of non–members added as signatories on accounts. In addition to verifying identification, in some cases, the Credit Union must also keep copies of the documents used to verify your identity. Any copies of documents used to verify identity will be secured in compliance with the Credit Union’s Privacy Policy.

If you are an existing member we may also need to verify and retain copies of any documents used to verify identity when you request new accounts or services.

Customer Identification Program (CIP)

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 to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.

We ask for your patience and understanding. Please remember this is a mandatory requirement from our government and your Credit Union must comply for your protection and the protection of our Country.

If you have any questions or comments concerning the Patriot Act, please contact us.
