Patriot Act

Important Information About Procedures for Opening A New Account – As Required by Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act.

Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. This mandated “Customer Information Program” is part of the USA PATRIOT Act, which was signed into law by President Bush in October 2001.

What this means for customers of Bridgewater Savings and our affiliates:

  • When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and US tax identification number.
  • We will also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents to verify your identity.
If you have questions about our new account opening procedures, or have questions about the USA PATRIOT Act, please call a Customer Service Representative at 800.356.8622.

We thank our customers for your support in this effort.
