IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT
“The US Patriot Act has paved the way for financial institutions to help prevent fraud, identity theft and the spread of terrorism. It requires financial institutions to obtain more information from an individual or legal entity to help establish identity. Your cooperation is needed when you open a new account or request a loan. You may be asked more questions to establish and confirm your identity. It may also require for you to provide one or more of the following types of identification: driver’s license, passport and country of issuance, U.S. tax payer identification (ID) number, alien ID card, or any other government issued document evidencing nationality or residence.”
NOTICE OF CHANGES IN TEMPORARY NCUA INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR TRANSACTION ACCOUNTS
All funds in a ‘‘noninterest-bearing transaction account’’ are insured in full by the National Credit Union Administration through December 31, 2012. This temporary unlimited coverage is in addition to, and separate from, the coverage of at least $250,000 available to members under the NCUA’s general share insurance rules.
The term ‘‘noninterest-bearing transaction account’’ includes a traditional share draft account (or demand deposit account) on which the insured credit union pays no interest or dividend. It does not include any transaction account that may earn interest or dividends, a negotiable order of withdrawal (‘‘NOW’’) account, money market deposit account, and Interest on Lawyers Trust Account (‘‘IOLTA’’), even if share drafts may be drawn on the account. For more information about temporary NCUA insurance coverage of transaction accounts, visit www.ncua.gov.
