Documents to verify identity 

Social Security Number 

During the registration process for getting a Convo number, we ask that you enter ONLY the last four numbers of your SSN to verify your identity. This is a required step by the FCC (you can learn more about that here).

IMPORTANT: Do NOT send or share a photo of your Social Security card.


Documents to verify residency (if needed)

Driver's License 

Your unexpired driver's license or State ID is the easiest way to verify your residency. The license or state ID need to have a physical address and not a PO Box.

Alternative documents 

If your driver's license does not have your current address on it, you will need to provide a secondary document below to verify that you are residing in the United States such as:

  • Utility bill

  • Current income statement from an employer, paycheck stub, or W­2

  • Prior year's state, federal, or Tribal tax return

  • Current mortgage or lease statement (this may include an agreement that enables residence in a school dormitory)

  • Unexpired United States government or state-issued ID

  • Government assistance program documents which include the name and address of the individual

  • Retirement/pension statement of benefits; and an unemployment/workers' compensation statement of benefits
