Personal Requirements

Identity Verification

Florida law requires that we confirm your identity using a 2-step process consisting of credential analysis and knowledge based authentication (KBA).  

You must:

  • Be a United States citizen or legal resident with a U.S. credit history that is not locked;
  • Have a driver's license or ID card issued by a U.S. state or U.S. territory, or a U.S. Passport;
  • Have a social security number; and
  • Have at least 3-5 years of credit history in the United States – (Your credit won't be, "pulled", but your credit history will be used to generate a 5-question test during the ID verification process).

Is your Credit Report Locked?

If your credit report is locked, you will not pass the ID verification process.  You will need to contact the credit bureaus to unlock your credit reports prior to beginning ID verification.  The lock must be removed from all of the bureaus.
