Provide your ID 

You need to use government-issued ID when you set up your account. 

Use a BC Services Card if you have one. When you do, you'll have:

  • More ways to verify your identity
  • Access to more websites

Find out what ID is accepted
 

Verify your identity

Enhanced levels of security help protect your privacy. This is why you'll complete a one-time security check to verify your identity when you set up your account. 

It's important because it:

  • Proves you are who you say you are
  • Makes sure no one else can set up with your ID
  • Helps protect your privacy

There are different ways you can verify your identity. Your options will depend on the type of account you set up, your age and what type of ID you have.
