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 must ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also request your driver's license or other identifying documents, even if you currently maintain a banking relationship with us. Strict adherence to these regulations helps to protect Valley and its customers from criminal activity. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
