Beneficial Ownership

What is the beneficial ownership regulation and why does it matter?
The U.S. Department of Treasury recently issued a final rule titled “Customer Due Diligence Requirements for Financial Institutions” (31 CFR 1010.230) that creates new due diligence obligations for credit unions and other financial institutions. All financial institutions are now required to collect and verify the identities of certain individuals who own or control legal entity customers, including corporations, limited liability companies (“LLCs”), partnerships, and other legal entities. Individuals who own or control legal entity customers are considered “beneficial owners” of that entity. The regulation is aimed at making financial institutions safer for their customers and protecting the country’s financial system.

What is required?
The regulation requires CMCU to gather the following information from beneficial owners of its new and existing legal entity customers:

  • Name,
  • Date of birth,
  • Current physical residential address or business address, and
  • Social Security Number (or other government issued identification number for non-U.S. citizens without a SSN).

Most U.S. publicly traded entities, regulated entities, and government entities will be excluded from these requirements.

How will the new requirement impact me?
A CMCU representative may ask to review the following documentation:

  • A document verifying your identity and date of birth, such as a driver’s license or passport. A copy of the identification document may also be requested.
  • A document verifying your current address, if not listed on the document.

While we understand the information requested is personal and sensitive, we need to obtain this information in order to comply with the law. As always, we will treat all information collected with the utmost care.  We appreciate your business and are committed to providing you with extraordinary service for years to come.
