Why am I being asked for more documentation?
Sometimes Dwolla system will be unable to verify your identity using the information you provide during registration. If that happens, Dwolla may request a state or federally-issued photo ID. Dwolla strives to strike a balance between security and convenience. To create the safest network possible, Dwolla verifies each person to ensure they are a real person and that they are the actual individual creating and using the Dwolla account.
If we ask for a Photo ID:
The security team determined that Dwolla needs additional information to ensure your account belongs to you. Upload these documents from the Dwolla page.
If we ask for a bank statement:
If you moved money between two bank accounts that are both linked to your Dwolla account, the Security team needs to double-check that you are an authorized signer on both accounts. Upload copies of recent bank statement from both banks from the Dwolla page.
If we ask for EIN or Non-profit documentation
Dwolla needs to verify:
- the name of your business
- your business’s EIN
- that you are an authorized signer for the organization
