Important Information about Opening a New Account

Account applications submitted outside of Illinois or Indiana will only be accepted from current customers or new customers recently relocated to our area.

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. When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We will also ask for information from your driver’s license or state-issued ID.

You understand that by applying online for your account, you are providing written instructions to Standard Bank & Trust Co. under the Fair Credit Reporting Act to obtain information from your personal credit profile (commonly referred to as a consumer report) from a consumer reporting agency. In addition, you authorize the Bank to obtain additional information from your consumer report at any time during the course of your account relationship as deemed necessary by the Bank.
