U.S. Bank Welcomes Final Twin Cities Visit of Mexican Consulate from Chicago

U.S. Bank (NYSE:USB) is welcoming the mobile unit of the Mexican Consulate from Chicago for its last visit to the Twin Cities before the permanent consulate office serving Minnesota opens its doors on West 7th Street in St. Paul in June.

The mobile consulate will be in Chaska, Minn., June 1-4 at Valley Free Church, 150 Engler Blvd., from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (June 1-3) and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 4. Representatives from the Mexican government will assist local Hispanics in gaining identification such as a passport or Matricula Consular.

U.S. Bank will also be on hand with six Spanish-speaking bankers to offer banking information specifically designed for the Hispanic community, along with special offers including the opportunity to receive free phone minutes for anyone who signs-up for a Secured Visa card or Secure Money Transfer at U.S. Bank after the event. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to win four courtside tickets to an upcoming Minnesota Lynx basketball game or a $100 U.S. Bank Visa gift card. U.S. Bank will also be giving away children's coloring books, crayons and U.S. Bank maracas.

"Establishing a solid banking relationship and building a positive credit history are important steps for anyone in building a healthy financial foundation, especially those who are new to the American financial system," said Maricruz Hill, emerging markets project leader for U.S. Bank in the Twin Cities. "We're very honored to partner with the Mexican consulate for these events and to be a trusted financial partner to Hispanic families and businesses in the Twin Cities."

U.S. Bank was one of the first financial institutions in America to accept the Matricula Consular as a form of identification when opening an account. In addition, U.S. Bank accepts the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), which makes it easier for individuals with non-resident status to open accounts. U.S. Bank has partnered with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Social Security to educate consumers about the use of the ITIN.

U.S. Bank offers a Spanish-language Web site at usbank.com/espanol with information on core banking products and services for individuals and small businesses, complete with a branch locator that identifies where to find Spanish-speaking U.S. Bank tellers and bankers. U.S. Bank also offers two money transfer services including MoneyGram and U.S. Bank Secure Money Transfer, an ATM card-based international money transfer service specially designed to send money to Mexico. A mortgage program called American Dream is available, as well as a special small business loan program called Capital! that is offered in conjunction with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in the Twin Cities.
