What You Need to Get Started

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 not available for citizens of Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) countries, Financial Action Task Force (FATF) identified high-risk and non-cooperative jurisdictions, and other high-risk jurisdictions, designated at the sole discretion of Robinhood. Citizens of these countries must provide copies of a valid U.S. passport or Permanent Resident Card.

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.
