USA PATRIOT Act
Last updated 8/19/19
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 business who opens an account and the personal information of its owners and/or authorized representatives. In opening a Center account this means that in addition to information about the business entity, we will also ask for identifying information about the business owner and any other individuals associated with the account. Such information will include the name, address, date of birth, social security number, tax status and other information that will allow appropriate identification to be made. We may also ask to see copies of driver’s licenses or other identifying material as part of the verification process.
Employee Cards may only be created for individuals of whom the business entity has validated the identity, using commercially acceptable screening methods such as employment screening and background checks and from whom business entity has acceptable documentation on file for the validation of the employee cardholder’s identity. Center reserves the right to request information and/or documentation to validate any employee cardholder’s identity if necessary and to close any employee cardholder’s Card if the cardholder’s identity cannot be validated and/or if issuing a Card to any individual may be a violation of the USA PATRIOT Act or any other applicable law.
