US Patriot Act

In order to comply with the U.S.A. Patriot Act, Atlantic Regional Federal Credit Union is required to verify the identity of members applying for and opening new accounts or services with the Credit Union. Federal law requires us to verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

What this means to the Members

When opening an account, we will be asking for their name, address, date of birth, tax identification number and other information that will allow us to identify them and any person(s) named on the account. We may also ask to see their driver's license or other identifying documents. Data on existing members will be gathered as they open or use additional services offered by the credit union. This act requires us to maintain records of the identification and verification and to periodically update this information.

Confidentiality of the information collected will be maintained as required by the Privacy Act.
