IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT
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. 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.
Community Property States:
AZ, CA, ID, LS, NV, NM, TX, WA, WI
If you the applicant are married and live in a community property state, we may require that you provide personal credit information on your spouse in the co-applicant section. If your spouse does not wish to be a co-applicant, she/he is not required.
California Residents: If you the applicant are married, you may apply for a separate account.
Ohio Residents: Ohio laws against discrimination require that all creditors make credit equally available to all creditworthy customers and that credit reporting agencies maintain separate credit histories on each individual upon request. The Ohio Civil Rights Commission administers compliance with this law.
New York and New Hampshire Residents: In connection with your application for credit, we may request a consumer report that contains information on your credit worthiness, credit standing, personal characteristics and general reputation. If we grant you credit, we or our servicer may order additional consumer reports in connection with any update, renewal or extension of the credit. If you ask us, we will tell you whether we obtained a consumer report and if we did, we will tell you the name and address of the consumer reporting agency that gave us the report.
Vermont Residents: By clicking on “Submit”, you authorize us and our employees or agents to obtain and verify information about you (including one or more credit reports, information about your employment and banking and credit relationships) that we may deem necessary or appropriate in evaluating your application. If your application is approved and credit is extended, you also authorize us, and our employees and agents, to obtain additional credit reports and other information about you in connection with reviewing the account, increasing the available credit on the account (if applicable), taking collection on the account, or for any other legitimate purpose.
Married Wisconsin Residents: Wisconsin law provides that no provision of any marital property agreement, or unilateral statement, or court order applied to marital property will adversely affect a creditor’s interests unless, prior to the time that the credit is granted, the creditor is furnished with a copy of the agreement, statement or decree, or has actual knowledge of the adverse provision. If you are applying for joint credit with someone other than your spouse, each of you must complete the Applicant section of separate applications. If either or both of you are married, you must provide information about your spouse.
