    Getting way off topic now, but no... in fact my bank (Ally) even reimburses any ATM fees I incur from out-of-network ATMs. You should not be paying any money to use a bank or any of its features in 2019.

    No they are not legal photo ID as they do not have your address on them.
    Neither do passports, not here anywhere.

    I don't know the answer to the question, but I would have a similar problem in this situation. I have forms of identification, but none of the ones that MA say they will accept.

    We don't have national ID cards in the UK, so that one is impossible.

    I don't drive. Technically I can, and I do have a driver's license, but it's 20 years out of date because I haven't used it since 1998, with an incorrect address and in an old format (no photo) that isn't generally accepted as ID.

    I don't have a valid passport because I haven't travelled outside of the UK since 2001. Passports expire after 10 years here, and the last time I had one I went for the full 10 years without using it once, so I haven't bothered renewing it. I could do it now but it would take a couple of months to sort it out (and cost me 75). Even if I did that, as Bonnie said above, our passports don't have an address on them, so it probably wouldn't be accepted by MA anyway.

    If they don't accept the passport then the only way that a non-driver in the UK would be able to provide the (very specific) ID requested would be to learn to drive and successfully pass the test to get a valid license. If you were, for example, legally blind or partially sighted, or have cerebral palsy, even that would be impossible.

    I have no idea what I would do if MA asked me to provide proof of my ID. Fortunately they never have.

    You can say "I don't know the answer" or say "I think you're gonna have to get some" without being a massive dickhead about it.

    One more thing - if anyone can explain why MA require a photo on the ID, when they have absolutely no way of being able to tell if the photo is of me or of someone completely different, I'd love to hear it.

    Exactly! They have no idea what I look like. Shouldn't something like a T4(Income tax form thingy), a utility bill, a bank statement be enough? Or the fact that my own Father and brother play the game and could just confirm who I am. I mean it would be quite the conspiracy for 3 people with the same last name who live in different cities/countries to play for 12 years before deciding to 'steal' an account for the purpose of Depositing money?

    • You can get a provisional licence photocard very easily even if you dont drive
    • You can get a renewed passport easily for an expired one (I did so a few years ago, I recommend you do so)



    You cant get in some nightclubs any more even if you are clearly over 25. You really do need to get up-to-date photoID, I tried to get a parcel a few years back with a valid but expired passport - they wouldnt accept that or the paper original birth certificate.

    I dont make the rules, I just watch idiots enforce them. Such is life.

    True, but it isn't always taken as valid ID. That said, I'm not sure if you can even do that if you had some form of disability that prevents you from driving, such as being registered blind.

    Yes, and for me that would be my first port of call if I needed the ID. It would take a while though, and I'm still not sure if they'd accept it as it doesn't have an address on. As it happens I intend to renew mine soon for entirely unrelated reasons, so if they do accept it, that would solve this problem for me (at least for 10 years), should I ever have it.

    I would think I'm more likely to get refused entry because of being obviously way too far over 25

    Getting very OT now, but I picked up a parcel from a Royal Mail sorting office about 2 weeks ago merely by waving my debit card in the guy's general direction. I don't think he even checked the name. If he did, he had tremendously good eyesight.
