The federal agency that administers compliance with this law concerning this creditor is the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection, 1700 G Street NW, Washington DC 20006.

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 or entity opening an account or establishing a credit relationship with the financial institution, and key individuals who own or control a legal entity (i.e., the beneficial owners). Requiring these disclosures helps law enforcement investigate and prosecute these crimes. This requirement applies to CIT Bank, a division of First-Citizens Bank & Trust Company.
