    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.
    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 will also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents. We appreciate your understanding and assistance in this matter.
Once a member, always a member - as long as the $25 share is maintained on deposit.
