Individual Requirements

To apply for a Robinhood account, you’ll need to meet the following requirements:

  • Be 18 years or older;
  • Have a valid Social Security Number (not a Taxpayer Identification Number);
  • Have a legal U.S. residential address within the 50 states or Puerto Rico (we may make exceptions for active U.S. military personnel stationed abroad); and
  • Be a U.S. citizen, U.S. permanent resident, or have a valid U.S. visa*.

*Option may not be available for citizens of countries subject to U.S. sanctions, as administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). Citizens of these countries may be requested to provide copies of a valid U.S. passport, Permanent Resident Card, or U.S. immigrant visa.

Note

Laws and regulations administered by OFAC impose restrictions on the provision of services to persons, including U.S. citizens and permanent residents, that are located in specified sanctioned jurisdictions, including Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, and the Crimea region of Ukraine. If you travel to these locations, you won’t be able to access your account, and attempted log-ins may lead to account restrictions.
