What is a self-certified ID (SCID)?

Used to confirm your identity, this is a picture of you holding one of the following IDs next to your face:

  • Driver's License
  • Passport
  • Government-issued photo ID 

Important: The SCID you upload must include a current ID and the entirety of the information on the ID must be viewable.

What is considered proof of residence?

Used to confirm your current residence, acceptable documents include:

  • Utility invoices
    • Example: Home services for energy, water/sewer, gas, or trash.
  •  Communications invoices
    • Example: Home services for phone, internet, cable, satellite, and mobile phones.
  • Bank statements
  • Leases with matching service and delivery addresses

Important: Other document types will not be accepted as proof of residence.

Proof of residence documents need to show your:

  • Name
  • Current address
  • An invoice/customer/account number
  • A date within 60 days of the upload date

Do you have any additional document upload criteria?

  • We can’t accept expired or temporary IDs.
  • Screenshots and scans aren’t permitted, but electronic PDFs are encouraged.
  • Uploaded images must be clearly visible and uploaded in full.
    • Important: Include all pages of a document that are not altered or redacted in any way, as this will void the document’s validity.

By uploading these documents, you are acknowledging to abide by our Conditions of Participation from our Terms of Use.
