Recent enactment of the USA Patriot Act requires financial institutions to implement new identification procedures.
These procedures require us to obtain certain identification, verify the accuracy of that identification and keep copies that identify all persons who open an account.   

In accordance with Section 326 of the USA Patriot Act, Carolina Postal Credit Union is required by law to:

  • Verify the identity of any person opening an account
    (which includes Trust, Investments, Safe Deposit,
    Loans and Deposit Accounts).
  • Obtain your name, address, date of birth, and
    identification number
  • Maintain records of the information used to verify the
    person's identity including name, address and other
    identifying means.

Carolina Postal Credit Union will follow this law by obtaining picture identification and verifying other information obtained.  In some cases, identification will be requested for those with relationships with Carolina Postal Credit Union prior to October 1, 2003 because original documentation was not obtained with the opening of the account. In all cases, protection of your identity and confidentiality is our pledge to you.
