Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Account with DeWitt Bank & Trust Company

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal laws 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.

Step 2

Stop using your old account. Balance your account with your previous financial institution to determine your checks, ATM withdrawals, debit card purchases or any
other transactions that you may have outstanding.
