The USA PATRIOT ACT requires credit unions to take extra security precautions 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. These new procedures are designed to prevent crimes, such as identity theft and account fraud that terrorists commit to finance their operations against the U.S. and its citizens.
Please understand that AFECU cannot waive this rule as it is part of the USA PATRIOT ACT. Thank you for your patience and help.
