How to Open an Account
Accounts are opened in person, in the branch, with a minimum of 45 minutes before closing time. You need three pieces of identification:
- a valid, US Government issued, non-expired photo ID,
- a post-marked piece of mail that matches the address on your ID, such as a utility bill, and
- your Social Security number.
We have changed our procedures for establishing membership in accordance with the USA Patriot Act – effective October, 2002. These new regulations help our country combat terrorism and protect our members against identity theft. Under the USA Patriot Act, financial institutions are required to retain and maintain a copy of a valid government issued ID and to verify identity prior to opening most types of accounts. Your cooperation in helping us meet these Federal requirements is appreciated.
