What information needs to be on the government issued photo ID?

The government issued photo ID must show:

  • Your name as indicated on your account application.
  • Your date of birth
  • The ID cannot be expired.

These steps are taken by FXCM to ensure the validity of the information on the application and to protect customers from potential fraud. FXCM utilizes various identification and verification systems to confirm the identities of our clients. Sometimes, if an identity cannot be confirmed, we ask for additional information to help us do so.
