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 for you: When you open an account, we will ask 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.
TO OPEN AN ACCOUNT FOR A MINOR: When opening an account for a minor (under 18 years of age), you will need to have a certified copy or original of their birth certificate and social security card available, or a state identification card.
MAKE A CHANGE TO YOUR ACCOUNT: In the future, if you would like to make a change to your account – for example, add a person or change a beneficiary, please contact us for assistance. There is a form you will need to complete.
If you would like to speak with a VyStar representative about your application, call VyStar’s Call Center at (904) 777-6000, option 9 or 1 (800) 445-6289, option 9.
