What documents do I need to open a KBC Current Account?

Proof of Photo Identity:
Each customer named on the account will need to provide the following:

  • 2 Proofs of Photo ID

Proof of Address:
Each customer named on the account should provide a copy of two of the following documents:
  • Utility Bill (Electricity, Gas, Landline Phone etc.)
  • Current Account Bank Statement
  • Credit Card Statement
All Proof of Address documents above must be less than 6 months old at the time of application.
Verification of Personal Public Service Number:
KBC is required to request your PPS number and verification of same upon account opening.
Please provide a copy of one of the following:
  • Any correspondence from the Revenue Commissioners or the Department of Social and Family Affairs which contains your name, address and PPSN
  • Payslip (where your employer is identified by name or tax number)
  • Employment Detail Summary
  • Statement of Liability 
  • Medical Card / Drug Payment Scheme Card
  • Notice of Tax Credits

We are unable to accept a Public Services Card - under law we cannot use this as proof of PPSN or identity.

Additional/alternative documentation may be required/accepted from time to time by KBC.
