Open a Monzo Account

Hello, I don’t currently have a Monzo account, but I am interested.

I am disabled (left side paralysis), and un-fit for work.

I do not own either a passport, or driving license. The only photographic ID I have is my disabled bus pass (issued by the local Council). Would this be accepted by Monzo?

Hello Diane,
Welcome to the Community

Heres some information to help you with your question:

To get started, you’ll need your phone and ID

To open a Monzo account you need to be at least 16 years old and live in the UK full time, with the right to reside here.

You’ll also need your phone and a valid ID. We accept your:

  • Passport
  • Driving licence (your provisional is fine)
  • National ID card
  • Biometric residency permit
  • Firearm or shotgun certificate
  • Electoral Identity Card issued by the Electoral Office for Northern Ireland

You can get more information on the Monzo Website here

Hello - i’m afraid not - like getting a phone contract in store, you’ll have to get a passport - this is the same for any bank account

Unfortunately not

Thank you all for the quick reply.

I am sure you’ll be able to get a passport pretty quickly

Apply online for a UK passport - GOV.UK (

Edit: A passport is more than you may think:
