HELP US FIGHT THE WAR ON TERRORISM

Customer Identification Program Federal regulations enacted pursuant to Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act require all financial institutions to verify the identity of every person who seeks to open an account with the bank after October 1, 2003. All persons are subject to the identity verification requirements even though you may be a long-term customer of and are well-known to the bank. As defined by the regulation, an “account” includes every formal banking relationship that entails ongoing services, dealings or transactions. Some examples are a deposit account, loan, trust relationship or safe deposit box rental. If you request to open an account or become a signatory on an account with Delta Bank and we have not previously verified your identity under the new regulatory requirements, 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. Similar identification requirements apply to business entities such as corporations and partnerships. Delta Bank will retain a copy of any document we rely on to verify your identity. Thank you for your cooperation in helping us comply with these new identity requirements.
