What is required to get a Green Dot debit card?

Federal law requires us to obtain, verify and record your name, address, date of birth, Social Security number when you register a Green Dot card. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents. If a valid Social Security number is not provided, a personalized card will not be issued. Activation requires online access, mobile number and identity verification (including SSN) to open an account and access all features. Activated, personalized card required to access some features.
