How the MyIdentity proof
of identity process works
When you chose to verify your identity online through the MyIdentity scheme, you are just a few steps away from owning and controlling your own identity credentials and certificate.
This can help speed up your property transaction and
potentially save you having to do & pay for multiple identity checks.
By having access to your own certified proof of identity you can share it with your estate agent, conveyancer, lawyer, mortgage broker and lender, and in the future other organisations, when asked to prove your identity.
