Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Account
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal Law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
What This Means to You:
When you open a new account, we will ask you for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
Call 218-336-1800 or visit an MPECU office to begin your application.
Online Account Opening Information:
Take precaution and do not use a public computer, such as in a library or shared environment, for entering your personal information.
If we are unable to reasonably verify you or your eligibility to join MPECU, you may be required to finish the online account opening in person.
