First, please contact us as soon as possible so we can put a block on your account to prevent someone else from using your card.

  • Birth certificate
  • Current vehicle insurance verification form
  • Student ID card with a photo of the student on it
  • Acceptable evidence of current school, college, or university enrollment or employment (examples include an official transcript or registrar’s receipt for students; examples for staff include a pay stub or staff ID card)
  • Social Security card
  • Medicare or other medical plan card
  • Current credit card
  • Military ID card; include rank and serial number on the application
