You must produce any official government-issued identification, such as a passport. ID from the Government Office/GOCC, as well as a driver's license. These items have to be shown when exchanging cash.
The only other form of ID that is accepted in some banks and at some branches of other companies is a utility bill. It has to show your name and address on it. Any other type of identification document is not accepted.
In most cases, yes, you will need an ID to exchange cash.
Some banks may have different rules regarding this. Sometimes there is no ID required, but sometimes they want to see proof that you are old enough to exchange money. If in doubt, ask them if they require an ID before exchanging cash.
Also remember that some banks may close at different times on weekdays or even weekends. Some offices may even be closed on Monday or Friday mornings. So make sure you check before going to a bank office to make sure it's open and what time it closes.
Exchanging cash without an ID can result in being turned away by the security guard. If this happens, you will have to start over again with another bank office.
You will normally be needed to provide a picture ID issued by the federal or state governments of the United States, such as a driver's license, passport, or military identity. They accept international passports as well as consular identification cards such as the Matricula Consular Card. You can also use your school certificate of completion from an accredited school in the United States.
If you don't have any of these things but still want to set up a bank account, you can make an appointment by calling 1-866-925-5511 and asking for the bank's "courtesy officer". They'll be able to help you if you give them a call first. Be sure to tell them that you need to set up a bank account for a student employee of the US government.
They'll be able to help you find a bank that is willing to open an account for you. Just remember, they won't be able to write a check on the account because they aren't authorized to do so. However, they can write a deposit ticket for any money that comes into the account. This can be done at most banking institutions by calling and making an appointment like I mentioned earlier.
All foreign bank accounts are subject to IRS sanctions if not reported annually. Failure to report the account may result in closure of the account by the institution with which it is linked.
You must bring a valid picture ID (passport, national ID, or residency permit) and may be required to give address evidence (bank statement or utility bill).
There is no requirement that you have an ID card to cash your Moneygram, but if you do not have one you can make copies of your identification documents and send them with your request. The only document that cannot be copied is a passport.
If you do not provide evidence that you are the owner of the account, such as a driver's license or birth certificate, the bank may deny your claim.
