Why do I need to create an account?

To ensure compliance with banking regulations in the United States, individuals under the age of 18 are required to obtain parental permission in order to acquire the MoCard. Consequently, if you have a teenager seeking to obtain a MoCard, it is necessary for you as parent or legal guardian to create an account on your behalf.

Why is a SSN required?

The requirement of providing a Social Security Number (SSN) when opening a bank account in the US is necessary to verify that person’s identity and ensure that they are the person they claim to be. It is a crucial step to prevent fraudulent activities and protect both the customer and the bank from potential risks. At Modak, the only required SSN is from the parent as they are they adult owner of the account.
