Money laundering

Money laundering claims many victims. Drug trafficking, illegal arms sales, prostitution, commercial fraud, people smuggling, corruption, and organized theft threaten the safety and security of our community.

Compliance with Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) Act helps detect, deter, and prevent money laundering activities. Under this Act is mandatory information, record keeping, and reporting requirements for financial entities including credit unions.

You will be asked to provide identification such as birth certificate, driver’s license, or similar type identification at account opening or when processing specified transactions.
