US Patriot Act Disclosure

Customer Identification Requirements

In accordance with Section 326 of the US Patriot Act, BankFinancial is required to obtain, verify, and record certain identifying information of customers at the time of account opening. These requirements are aimed at combating money laundering and international terrorism. Failure to provide us with the necessary information could result in us being unable to establish a banking relationship.


What this means for you

When you open an account, you will be asked to provide your name, address, date of birth, and other information that allows us to verify your identity. We may ask to see a current picture identification, such as your driver’s license or other identifying documents. In some cases, identification will be requested for current account holders if original documentation was not obtained with the opening of the account. In all cases, protection of customer identity and confidentiality is our pledge to you.


We proudly support all efforts to protect and maintain the security of our customers and our country.
