Customer Identification Verification

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal laws require that all financial institutions obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

What does this mean for you?

When you open an account, Nationwide Planning Associates, Inc. will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and a government-issued identification number that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents. For certain entities, such as trusts, estates, corporations, partnerships, or other organizations, identifying documentation is also required.

Your account may be restricted and/or closed if Nationwide Planning Associates, Inc. cannot verify this information. Nationwide Planning Associates, Inc. will not be responsible for any losses or damages (including, but not limited to, lost opportunities) resulting from any failure to provide this information, from any restriction placed upon your account, or from the closing of your account.
