Cash ISA - Documentation
Updated this week

If your Plum account isn't already verified, you'll need to provide us with some documentation when you decide to create a Cash ISA account. This is necessary to comply with legal requirements and as part of our KYC (Know Your Customer) process, which we're obligated to carry out.

In case you need to provide those documents, the verification should be completed within around 2 business days. If you find yourself still waiting, it's likely because one of your documents didn't meet one or more of the requirements. You'll usually receive an email notification if your document fails to meet the requirements.


Identity Document

Below, you can see what documents can be accepted for the verification of your identity.

✅ Valid passport

✅ National ID cards (issued in European countries)

✅ Residence Permit

❌ Proof of age cards

❌ Old-style paper driving license

❌ Any expired documents


Proof of Address Document

Below, you can see what documents can be accepted for the verification of your address.

  • utility bills, including gas, electricity, or water

  • bank statements or mortgage statements

  • tenancy agreements (where both parties are signed)

The document must be issued within the last 3 months and must include your full name, full address, the issue date. We can accept either live photos of the documents or PDFs, but we do not accept neither screenshots, nor photos of the screen.
