USA Patriot Act

Important Information about opening a new account


Customer Identification Notice

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, the USA PATRIOT Act was enacted. Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person and/or entity that opens an account.
The USA PATRIOT Act is an essential part of our Nation's efforts on the war against terrorism helping to protect America from terrorist attacks.

What this means to you:

When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth (for individuals) and other information that will allow us to verify your identity. We will also require you to provide additional information to help protect your account, and most importantly, to better serve you. Specifically, we will need to document:
  • Your identification
  • Your Social Security Number
  • Your employment (3 Year Period)
  • The purpose of the account
  • The anticipated activity on the account
We extend our thanks and appreciation for your cooperation and understanding of the extra steps taken by California International Bank, N.A. to help ensure the protection of America.
