In accordance with Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act signed October 26, 2001, all persons are subject to the identity verification requirements even though they may be a long-term customer of and well known to GCF Bank.
For the purpose of the regulation, an "account" includes every formal banking relationship that entails ongoing services, dealings or transactions. Some examples are a deposit account, loan, or safe deposit box rental.
If you request to open an account or become a signatory on an account with GCF Bank and GCF has not previously verified your identity under the new regulatory requirements, GCF will request documentary verification of your identity, such as a driver's license or passport and/or it will verify your identity through other non-documentary methods. Similar identification requirements apply to business entities such as corporations and partnerships.
In all cases, protection of our customer's identity and confidentiality is GCF Bank's pledge to you.
