IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT 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 request to open an account, we will ask for your full name including middle name, your physical address, date of birth, social security number or tax identification number, or other information that will allow us to identify you. We will require a photo identification issued by a government agency, which would typically be your driverís license, or Tennessee issued identification card.
CECU will also obtain a credit report prior to opening an account for you. Based on your credit rating, CECU may not offer you all of our services and products or may deny your account request. If you do not wish for CECU to obtain a credit rating, we will not be able to open an account for you.
