Is my account verified with just my SSN?

Is my account verified with just my SSN?

And where can I check my account status to be certain I'm verified? 
I cannot get a credit card yet, I really can't.
Thank you, lot, ahead of time.Heart

After adding your social, you'll have only one more step that needs doing before you're verified. 

 

Here is a PayPal link with more details.

Re: Is my account verified with just my SSN?

Thank you, this answered my question.
If I may ask another; could a credit union or bank alternative, be used to verify?  I'm just getting started as an artist online and I hear they don't have fees or hoops to jump through that have caused my relatives stress. Apologies if I had to start a new thread for this question.^^'

I'm not sure if you can verify your PayPal account with a prepaid debit card. If this is possible the PayPal Prepaid debit card would probably be the card to try. This card has a monthly fee.

 

There is the PayPal Cash debit card. This card is no cost and has no monthly fee. I'm not sure if an unverified account can get one. This card would be directly linked to your PayPal account.

 

The Prepaid card is not directly linked to your account like the Cash card is.

 

Here are the PayPal links for both.

For banking, you would need to look into the fees and see if you could manage it, if you don't have a direct deposit that would waive them. 

 

I hope this helps.
