Customer Identification Program (CIP)

Due to federal regulations, all financial institutions including Higher One, are required to properly identify each of its account holders. Since Higher One provides our services online, the government requires Higher One to obtain this information in other ways.

Acceptable forms of photo identification are unexpired government-issued documents. Valid documents include:passport

  • Driver's Licensedriver-license
  • Passport (showing the passport number and country of origin)
  • State ID
  • Military ID (Showing front and back of the card)
  • Permanent Resident Alien Card
  • Certificate of U.S. Naturalization

For your convenience, we have created several ways for you to verify your identity.
