In order to comply with the USA PATRIOT Act, financial institutions must implement an Anti-Money Laundering Program, which includes knowing the identity of their customers. Verification of identity applies to both new policies and when certain changes are made to the information on existing policies. In order to satisfy our obligation, you may be asked to allow our agent to view your unexpired, government issued picture ID. The verification process may also include the use of a third party source to confirm the information provided to us. Please be assured that this information will be treated with the highest regard for your privacy.
