Why do you require Evidence of Identity?

You are required to confirm your identity to us (including your surname, first name, date of birth and address) for the administration of your Product(s) and any other State Savings Product(s) that you may hold now or in the future, and associated legal purposes, including compliance with statutory anti-money laundering obligations and account security and fraud prevention.

We may verify your identity:

  • electronically (by reference to information supplied by you, including your Personal Public Service Number (PPSN)); or

  • manually (by reference to acceptable original or certified copy documentation supplied by you, which may include documents such as current passport, current EU driving licence, recent utility bill, recent account statement from a bank, building society or credit union, and/or your Public Services Card or other official documentation issued to you by the Revenue Commissioners or the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection).
