USA Patriot Act

September 11, 2001 changed our lives forever.  To protect you and our country, President Bush signed the USA Patriot Act into law on October 26, 2001.

The USA Patriot Act says all financial institutions must:

  • Verify the identity of any person seeking to open an account (which includes Trust, Investments, Safe Deposit, Loans and Deposit Accounts).
  • Maintain records of the information used to verify the personís identity including name, address and other identifying means.

The Old Fort Banking Company will follow this law by obtaining picture identification and verifying other information given by our clients.  In some cases, we may request identification for those banking with us if we did not obtain original documentation with the opening of your account. In all cases, protection of our clientís identity and confidentiality is our pledge to you.

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