In accordance with Section 326 of the USA Patroit Act of 2001,which requires the Allegheny Valley Federal Credit Union to help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laudering activities, the Allegheny Valley Federal Credit Union is required to obtain basic identifying information from you and verify that information when you open a new account.
This means the Allegheny Valley Federal Credit Union staff will ask you for some basic information such as your name,address,date of birth and other information designed to help us identify you. Allegheny Valley Federal Credit Union staff will also ask to see documents identifying you such as, social security card, driver's license, passport, school photo ID, U-PARC security badge(or similar work identification badge), credit reports, and /or other government-issued documents.
In some cases, identification will be requested for those conducting business with the Allegheny Valley Federal Credit Union prior to the effective date of the member identification requirements. This is because original documentation was not obtained with the opening of the account or the Allegheny Valley Federal Credit Union is unable to form a reasonable belief that it knows the true identity of the existing account holder.
In all cases, protection of our member's identity and confidentiality is the Credit Union's pledge to you. The Allegheny Valley Federal Credit Union appreciates your patience and understanding as we all do our part in complying with new account identification procedures required by the federal USA Patroit Act of 2001.
