The Legacy Experience

  • I always wondered what would happen after my parents pass. Having Legacy facilitate these conversations has helped us become closer as a family.

  • My Legacy advisor gives me advice, not just ideas. When I meet with her, I walk away understanding the impact of my decisions.

  • When my mother-in-law passed, the estate settlement happened far away and her trust officer was no longer assigned to our account. When we settled my Dad’s estate, our Legacy trust officer was part of the entire process. The continuity of that relationship really made a positive difference in our experience.

  • When I have questions, I know you’ll give me honest answers, even if it’s not what I want to hear.

  • I sold my business, but I’m too young to stop working. You didn’t just help with my newfound wealth, you helped me sort out the next steps on my path.

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.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; however, federal law prohibits us from waiving these requirements.
