Because We Care
On September 11th, 2001 our lives changed forever.
In an effort to protect you and our country, President Bush signed the USA Patriot Act into law on October 26, 2001.
One section of the USA Patriot Act says all financial institutions must:
- Verify the identity of any person seeking to open an account (which includes Trusts, Safe Deposit Boxes, Loans and Deposit Accounts).
- Maintain records of the information used to verify the person's identity including name, address, and other identifying means.
Bank of Ripley trusts you will understand the necessity of these requirements and help us follow them by presenting picture identification and other verifiable information. In some cases, identification will be requested from those who have banked with us prior to the adoption of the USA Patriot Act because original documentation was not obtained with the opening of the account. In all cases we pledge to protect your identity and confidentiality.
Bank of Ripley proudly supports all efforts to protect and maintain the security of our customers and our country.
