Beneficial Ownership Rules/Requirements:

All banks are subject to rules under the Bank Secrecy Act imposed by the United States Department of Treasury. This federal requirement will help law enforcement investigate involvement in terrorist financing, money laundering, drug dealing, fraud, and other financial crimes.
EACH time an account is opened or an existing account’s structure is changed for a covered business, which the rule calls a Legal Entity, we will be required to ask you for identifying information (Name, Address, Date of Birth, and Social Security Number), as well as a copy of your driver’s license or government-issued ID for:

  • EACH individual that has 25% or more Beneficial Ownership in the Legal Entity; and,
  • ONE individual that has Significant Managerial Control of the Legal Entity.
  • You will be asked to certify that this information is true and accurate to the best of your knowledge.  We will provide a Beneficial Ownership Form to collect this information.

Please be assured that we go to great lengths to protect and maintain the privacy and security of our customers and our country.

Please keep all of the documentation mentioned above current and available to present EACH time you come in to establish a new business account or make changes to an existing business account, for each identified individual.
