Additional information about New Account Procedures
Axos Bank® is required by Federal Law to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each client who applies for an account. When a client applies for an account, we will ask for the client’s legal name, address tax identification number and other identifying information. We may ask for additional copies of documents evidencing the existence and good standing of the entity.
Information at Account Opening
Federal law, including the USA PATRIOT Act, requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person or business that opens an account. When you apply for a business account, we will ask for your business name, address, and Tax Identification Number (TIN). We will also ask for your name, date of birth and social security number, which will allow us to verify your identity. We may validate the information you provide to us to ensure we have a reasonable belief of your identity and your business. If we are not able to verify your identity to our satisfaction, we will not open your account or we may close the account if it was previously funded. When you apply for a Sole Proprietor account, we will ask you and any authorized signer for your legal name, residential address, date of birth and Social Security Number (SSN). We will require one or more forms of unexpired photo identification. We may validate the information you provide to us to ensure we have a reasonable belief of your identity. If we are not able to verify your identity to our satisfaction, we will not open your account or we may close the account if it was previously funded.
