If you get a message on the ID.me site that tells you that your identity couldn’t be verified, it simply means that we couldn’t match all of the information you provided with the information available in the electronic records we use for verification. It does not mean that we will not be able to verify your identity, but that we need to take some additional steps to do so.
There are many reasons you may not be able to pass identity proofing:
- You have moved within the last year
- You have had a legal name change
- There is erroneous information in your credit file
- You already have verified your identity with ID.me
- The information entered is incorrect or mistyped
If you continue to fail the identity proofing process, we recommend you check your official records to make sure the information you are entering is accurate and typed correctly.
