Patriot Act

Important information about procedures for opening a new account

On September 11, 2001, our lives changed forever when our country was attacked. In an effort to protect you and our country, President Bush signed the USA Patriot Act into law on October 26, 2001.

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 (checking, savings, certificates of deposit, loans, safekeeping services, trust services, etc.)

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.

In all cases, protection of our customers' identity and confidentiality is Basile State Bank's pledge to you.
