The Patriot Act requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person opening an account.  We also require your social security number to issue you a tax reporting form at the end of each year.  Your Social Security number is only used to verify your identity. We don't do a credit check or pull up any information that would affect your credit score. 

Please ensure that you enter the correct information on signup including your correct legal first and last name, home address, SSN, DOB, etc.
