Proof of address (POA)
Onfido’s proof of address (PoA) report enables the capture, verification and upload of PoA documents. Allow customers to submit a supported document – such as a bank statement or utility bill – via mobile, desktop or across devices. All as part of one simple onboarding step.
Proof of address documents
Verify PoA documents
Customers submit a PoA document – we check the document’s quality and authenticity, and validate the data.
Navigate AML regulations
Verify PoA as part of customer onboarding and meet AML directives across the US, Canada, UK and Europe.
Remove the time-intensive and manual part of PoA and perform checks as part of existing identity verification processes.
Proof of address examples
Onfido’s proof of address (PoA) report is one way we help businesses satisfy data verification.
How does proof of address work?
During onboarding, customers submit a PoA document for verification via mobile, desktop or across devices.
We check the document for authenticity, a valid issue date, and that information on the document matches what is provided by the applicant, for example during a document check.
We provide a breakdown of results in the Onfido dashboard.
